The consent of the Assembly is also sought in certain instances where UK Government Ministers exercise order-making powers in devolved areas which are provided for by existing primary legislation. Such consent is given by the Assembly through Consent Motions. They are different to
'Legislative' Consent Motions in that they relate to orders emanating from UK Acts already in force rather than provisions included in Bills which are yet to receive approval from the UK Parliament.
Consent Motions for the UK orders outlined below have been considered during the Fourth Assembly. The tables below include a list of Consent Memoranda laid for each year of the Fourth Assembly from 2012 onwards.
