Committee notes our concerns about equalities and human rights.
We responded to the External Affairs and Additional Legislation
Committee's inquiry into how the Welsh Government is responding to
Brexit. The Committee wanted to know what are the main issues
facing each sector as a result of Brexit, what advice or assistance
have we received from Welsh Government and what would help us
prepare for Brexit. In terms of the main issues facing the third
sector, we took a steer from our recent member's surveys and
highlighted the following: the weakening of equalities and human
rights, the loss of funding and the threat to devolution.
The Committee noted some of our concerns within its recent
report How is the Welsh Government Preparing for Brexit, with
a commitment to take action to address them, including
the threat Brexit poses to equalities and human rights. On
this point, the Committee stated "We note the concerns expressed by
the WCVA and intend to explore the implications of Brexit for
equalities during the spring term 2018."
