What legal advice has the Counsel General provided the Welsh Government to ensure that nuisance rough sleeping penalties from the incoming UK Criminal Justice Bill do not impact on the Ending Homelessness in Wales Action Plan?

Answered by Counsel General | Answered on 18/04/2024

The Criminal Justice Bill and the impact of it is being considered by Welsh Government in line with established constitutional procedures. The Legislative Consent Memorandum laid by Welsh Government on 29 January 2024 and Supplementary Legislative Consent Memorandum laid on 2 April 2024 set out the position on the clauses of the Bill which engage the Legislative Consent Motion process. Further information on the Welsh Government response to the Criminal Justice Bill can be found here.
