Intergovernmental Relations Quarterly Report

Volume 701: debated on Thursday 21 October 2021

Today the UK Government published the second quarterly report of our engagement with the devolved Administrations on the page for intergovernmental relations (IGR). This report has also been deposited in the Libraries of both Houses.

The report aims to be useful, accessible, and engaging to a broad audience, recognising the public interest in how the UK Government and the devolved Administrations work together to deliver outcomes for all citizens across the UK. It reflects the Government’s continued commitment to increased transparency of IGR and effective scrutiny of the UK Government’s role in intergovernmental meetings.

Our second quarterly report on IGR provides information on intergovernmental meetings across the UK Government with counterparts in the Scottish Government, Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive between 1 March and 30 June 2021. It covers an important period of ministerial engagement following the parliamentary elections in Scotland and Wales, and continued joint working as we focus on the UK’s covid-19 response and recovery.
