The Eu (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill

As a general rule, the UK Parliament does not legislate on matters falling within the competence of the Scottish Parliament, Senedd Cymru or the Northern Ireland Assembly without the consent of the competent body. This conception of the Constitution is sometimes called the Sewel Convention. Approval is expressed by a motion for legislative approval. Below is the relevant legislative information provided by the decentralized legislators concerning this draft law, including the cases in which the competent legislator has decided not to give its consent. As part of the “English votes for English laws” procedure, the spokesperson certifies bills or provisions of Bills that relate exclusively to England and/or England and Wales.
