United Kingdom Internal Market Bill — Clause 48 — Power to Provide Financial Assistance for Economic Development — Consultation with Devolved Administrations — 10 Dec 2020 at 14:44

The majority of MPs voted to require consultation with relevant devolved administrations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on the principles for providing financial assistance for economic development under the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill, and, in respect of specific payments, to require consent from those administrations which could have made the payments themselves.

MPs were considering the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill[1][2].

The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That this House disagrees with the Lords in their Amendments Nos. 48B and 48C.

Lords amendment 48B[3] stated:

  • Page 40, line 41, at end insert—
  • “(1A) The powers in subsection (1) may only be exercised—
  • (a) after consultation with the relevant authority on the principles under which financial assistance may be provided by a Minister of the Crown;
  • (b) after publication of such principles; and
  • (c) with the consent of the relevant authority where the financial assistance is assistance that could be given by a relevant authority.

Lords amendment 48C[3] stated:

  • Page 41, line 10, at end insert— :““relevant authority” means the Welsh Ministers in respect of Wales, the Scottish Ministers in respect of Scotland, and the Northern Ireland Executive in respect of Northern Ireland.”

These amendments impacted Clause 48 of the bill[4].
