Legislative Consent at the Assembly

Legislative consent is the process by which the UK Parliament seeks the agreement of the Assembly to legislate on a subject matter which is devolved to the Assembly (a “devolution matter”).  Convention requires the agreement of the Assembly before Parliament may pass such legislation.
