The Petitions Committee will begin holding virtual meetings from the week commencing 11 May 2020. These initial meetings will focus on petitions relating to COVID-19 and new petitions of a time sensitive nature. A decision will be taken in the future on when the committee will be able to return to considering all other petitions.

 

We launched a new petitions website on 30 April 2020 in order to improve the experience of starting and signing petitions to the Senedd.

Visit the new website here: https://petitions.senedd.wales/

Remit

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.
