Brexit and Wal​e​​​​s​

In a UK referendum on 23 June 2016, 51.9% of voters chose for the United Kingdom to end its membership of the European Union ('Brexit').   

As the National Assembly for Wales, we represent the interests of Wales and its people.  Our role is to hold the Welsh Government to account on its actions, including how it prepares for the implications of Brexit for Wales. ​

The Assembly will be considering proposed legislation that arises as a result of the Brexit preparations.  Detailed examination of these matters, as well as other issues affecting Wales, takes place through inquiries.  These inquiries are undertaken by the Assembly’s committees, and are usually debated in Plenary.
