Secondary legislation stemming from the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018

Under the 2018 Act, where the Scottish Government intends to consent to the UK Government laying statutory instruments that include proposals relating to devolved competencies, it will notify the Scottish Parliament to enable the Parliament to scrutinise its intention to consent to such statutory instruments. The approval process is set out in a protocol designed to aid parliamentary scrutiny.

The Scottish Parliament is informed of the Scottish Government's intention to seek approval by what are known as 'consent notifications' sent by Scottish Ministers. These notifications are then considered by the relevant subject committee. The complete list of consent notifications is provided below in date order.
