Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) bill

Explanatory Notes

Territorial extent and application

12 The Bill will extend to England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The effects of the provisions are substantively the same throughout the UK, but as amendments are needed to different pieces of legislation in the different nations, some provisions of the Bill apply to England and Wales only, some to Scotland, and others to Northern Ireland.

13 The matters to which the provisions of the Bill relate are not within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, Senedd Cymru or the Northern Ireland Assembly because they relate to the Armed Forces, and no legislative consent motion is being sought in relation to any provision of the Bill.
