Dear David


Safe Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill


At the Finance Committee meeting of 21 January 2015, the Committee considered the financial implications of the Safe Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill.


At this stage the Committee will not be undertaking any further financial scrutiny of the Bill. We would like to request that during your scrutiny of the general principles of the Bill that you give consideration to the financial implications and should you feel there is any financial implications which we should be aware of and may benefit from further scrutiny by our Committee I’d be grateful if you could let me know.


Whilst the Committee agreed not to undertake any further scrutiny, Members did have concerns that most of the costs of the Bill would result from regulations and the RIA contains limited details of costs in this area, I would be grateful if you could consider this as part of your wider scrutiny.


I am copying this letter to Kirsty Williams as the Member in charge. 


Yours sincerely



Jocelyn Davies AM
