I am pleased to announce the publication of analysis of English votes for English laws in relation to Government amendments to the Wales Bill at Commons Report.
The English votes for English laws process applies to public Bills in the House of Commons. To support the process, the Government have agreed that they will provide information to assist the Speaker in considering whether to certify that Bill or any of its provisions for the purposes of English votes for English laws.
The memorandum provides an assessment of tabled Government amendments to the Wales Bill at Commons Report, for the purposes of English votes for English laws. The Department’s assessment is the amendments do not change the territorial application of the Bill.
The memorandum can be found on the Bill documents page of the Parliament website at: http://www.parliament. uk/bills and I have deposited a copy in the Libraries of both Houses.
