This question was answered on 5th July 2021

The Welsh Government was consulted during the development of the Armed Forces Bill.

The Government continues to work with all the Devolved Administrations, as demonstrated recently by certain Government’s amendments to the Bill that followed requests from the Welsh and Scottish Governments.

We continue to engage on developing the statutory guidance that will support the legislation to strengthen the Armed Forces Covenant.
