Members of the Senedd undertake their tasks of representing Wales and its people, making laws for Wales and holding the Welsh Government to account in a number of ways. These include attending Plenary and sitting on Senedd Committees to scrutinise specific issues.
Plenary meetings are attended by all Members of the Senedd (MS) and are one of the key mechanisms for MS to hold the Welsh Government and Senedd Commission to account. Find out more about Plenary, the Siambr, and types of Plenary business
Committees in the Senedd carry out many functions. They are the main way of scrutinising the policies of the Welsh Government, holding Ministers to account, and examining proposed legislation in detail.
