Brexit and Wales
Latest Brexit activity at the Assembly
Updated 15 October 2018
To kick off another busy week, on Monday morning, the External Affairs Committee will be hearing from George Hollingbery MP, UK Minister of State for Trade Policy. They will be asking questions about the development of a UK trade policy after leaving the European Union, how the needs of Wales will be taken into account and how the Welsh Government can be included in discussions on the UK Government's Trade Bill.
The following day in Plenary, the Cabinet Secretary for Finance will make a statement on regional investment after Brexit. This follows the publication in September of the Finance Committee's report into the replacement of EU funding streams. This blog post from the Research Service looks at what might replace EU funding streams in future, outlines the Welsh Government's proposals, and talks about what the proposed UK-wide Shared Prosperity Fund could mean for Wales.
On Thursday, the Culture, Welsh Language and Communications committee will be holding a full-day meeting on the implications of Brexit for the areas that they're responsible for. The wide-ranging sessions will consider how the UK leaving the EU may impact on the arts and creative industries, the heritage sector and the Welsh language. The committee will also be asking questions to the Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport about what the Welsh Government is doing to prepare for Brexit in this area.
