Petitions Committee briefings

Published 09/05/2022   |   Last Updated 24/05/2022   |   Reading Time minutes

The petitions process is one of the main ways the public can engage with and influence the work of the Senedd.

Use of the Senedd’s petitions system has grown steadily since it was introduced in 2007, and has seen a dramatic increase in recent years - 211 petitions were considered in 2020, compared to 82 the previous year.

Each petition with more than 250 signatures is considered by the Senedd’s Petitions Committee.

Senedd Research provides the Committee with a research brief to inform its consideration of each petition. You can find a collection of those research briefs below.
