Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill — New Clause 19 — Justice Impact Assessment for Wales — 5 Jul 2021 at 21:00

The majority of MPs voted not to require assessments of the Bill's impacts on devolved policy and services in Wales.

MPs were considering the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill[1][2]

The proposed new clause rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was titled: Justice impact assessment for Wales and stated:

  • ‘(1) Within six months of the passage of this Act, the Secretary of State must issue a justice impact assessment for any provision of this Act, or regulations made under this Act, which impacts on matters which are devolved to the Welsh Parliament / Senedd Cymru.
  • (2) The Secretary of State must, within one month of the date on which they are made, issue a justice impact assessment for any regulations made under this Act which are not included in the assessment required under subsection (1) which impact on matters which are devolved to the Welsh Parliament / Senedd Cymru.’

The rejected new clause was accompanied by the following statement from its proposer:

  • This new clause would require the Secretary of State to issue an assessment of the impact of the Bill on devolved policy and services in Wales within six months of it passing, and to issue such an assessment of any further changes to regulations under the Bill within one month of making them.

The motion rejected in this vote was:

  • That the clause be added to the Bill.
