The next Senedd election is scheduled for 6 May. In recognition of the need to ensure a level playing field for all candidates during the election period, all committee activity will cease with effect from 7 April (except very limited activity in relation to urgent subordinate legislation or the provisions of Welsh Elections (Coronavirus) Act 2021). New committees are expected to be established before summer 2021.
Committee for the Scrutiny of the First Minister - Fifth Senedd
Committee for the Scrutiny of the First Minister
The Committee was established on 28 June 2016 to scrutinise the First Minister on any matter relevant to the exercise of the functions of the Welsh Government.
The Committee has agreed to meet in public once during each Senedd term and in different locations around Wales where possible. It also agreed to take a strategic approach and to focus on areas related to the First Minister’s specific portfolio responsibilities or his leadership role for the Welsh Government.
