The Government is continuing discussions with the devolved administrations, working through the relevant areas of EU law to determine where common approaches will and will not be required, and the different forms that common approaches could take. The common framework principles agreed at the Joint Ministerial Committee (European Negotiations) are guiding these discussions. The Government expects that the return of powers from the EU will lead to a significant increase in the decision making powers for the devolved administrations.
