Daily business

Assembly Members 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 Assembly Committees to scrutinise specific issues.

What is ​Plenary?

Plenary meetings are attended by all Assembly Members (AMs) and are one of the key mechanisms for AMs to hold the Welsh Government and Assembly Commission to account. Find out more about Plenary, the Siambr, and types of Plenary business

What is a c​​ommittee?

Committees in the Assembly 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.
