The Petitions Committee considers all admissible petitions received by the Senedd. Petitions can be signed and submitted through the Petitions site.
Latest Committee Activity
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 – information will be published on this website.
The Senedd is now in recess. The petitions process will be suspended from 7 April for the duration of the election campaign, including the ability to sign and submit petitions. The petitions process will be reopened following the Election.
Get involved with petitions
The Petitions Committee was established on 28 June 2016 to carry out the functions of the responsible committee set out in Standing Order 23.
Its role is to consider all admissible petitions that are submitted by the public. Petitions have to be about issues that the Senedd has powers to take action on. The petitions process enables the public to highlight issues and directly influence the work of the Senedd. Its specific functions are set out in Standing Order 23.
