Subject matter and legislative competence of devolved legislatures

"International development assistance and co-operation" is a reserved matter under paragraph 7(1) of Schedule 5 to the Scotland Act 1998 and an excepted matter under paragraph 3 of Schedule 2 to the Northern Ireland Act 1998. The subject matter is not listed as a devolved matter in Schedule 7 to the Government of Wales Act 2006, and is therefore not devolved.
