The Fifth Senedd ran from May 2016 to May 2021
Emergency Questions - Fifth Senedd
Members of the Senedd may make a request at any time to ask an Emergency Question to a member of the Welsh Government or Senedd Commission during Plenary meetings. However, Emergency Questions are only allowed if the Presiding Officer (or the Deputy Presiding Officer if a question relates to the Senedd Commission) is satisfied that the question is of urgent national significance. Emergency Questions were introduced in the Assembly in May 2017, alongside Topical Questions. These replace the procedure for asking Urgent Questions.
