“Welsh government follows its Scottish counterparts in opposing the anti-boycott bill”

by Steve Topple in @thecanaryuk

“The Welsh government has announced that is formally opposing the Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill. The legislation, better known as the ‘anti-boycott bill’, aims to stop movements like Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) influencing public bodies to join in. However, the Welsh government is recommending that Wales‘ Senedd withhold its consent – following on from the Scottish government making the same decision.”
