International and European Union issues are a matter reserved for the United Kingdom Government. We liaise with the devolved Administrations through the Joint Ministerial Committee. As is normal practice, a Joint Ministerial Sub-Committee on Europe was held before the December European Council. All devolved Administrations were given the opportunity to feed in their views.
