Welcome to the Senedd’s new website. If you have any difficulty using this site please get in touch.
We make laws, set taxes and oversee the work of the Welsh Government.
Holding government to account
Overseeing the Welsh Government
We check up on the work and spending of the Welsh Government.
We do this through meetings in the Senedd chamber called Plenary, where Members debate Welsh Government plans and question ministers.
Our committees then focus on aspects of life in Wales, looking at new laws and government policy that affect you.
How laws are made
We make and examine laws that affect us all.
This could be a new law, called a Bill, or making changes to an existing one.
After careful examination and consideration laws are voted on to see if they get approval in the Senedd. If approved it will become an 'Act of the Senedd' and a new law in Wales.
