The “Henry VIII” power in the clause could be used where necessary to amend primary legislation to ensure arrangements required in the Northern Ireland Protocol are operational and to implement the requirements set out in the Protocol.</p><p> </p><p>In response to concerns raised by the Devolved Administrations, clause 18 of the Bill (<em>Main power in connection with other separation issues</em>) has been restricted so that powers under this clause cannot be used to amend the devolution acts, including the Government of Wales Act 2006.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is working to establish whether restricting the powers in clause 21 in a similar way would mean the obligations in the Protocol could still be met. Subject to the outcome of this work, the Government would be open to imposing the restriction by amending the Bill during its passage.</p><p> </p>

During the past 12 months, MoJ has introduced guidance on supporting victims of domestic abuse (November 2018) and a policy to support EU nationals (August 2019). In August, MoJ introduced the Gender Identity and Intersex Policy and Guidance for staff who identify as transgender, non-binary and intersex.
