The National Assembly Outreach Team attended an event organised by the UK Parliament on Thursday 3 October 2011. The event, which was held in Llandudno, aimed to build greater awareness, understanding and engagement with the Houses of Parliament. The Outreach Team attended presentations on the work of select committees and the UK Parliament’s scrutiny of legislation. Delegates received an insight into how the Welsh Affairs Select Committee examine matters which fall within the Secretary of State for Wales’s responsibilities and an interesting talk from Lord Jones KBE. The National Assembly for Wales Bus was present for delegates to come along and discuss National Assembly for Wales’ responsibilities and how they can engage with the Assembly.
