Business Committee Legacy report

Supporting documents:

  • Restricted enclosure 70
  • Restricted enclosure 71
  • Restricted enclosure 72

Minutes:

Siân Wilkins presented a draft of the Legacy report for Board to consider the implications of discussions that were taking place in Business Committee, which were likely to affect formal Assembly business in the Fifth Assembly. Any changes suggested to the business week, that the new Business Committee might adopt, were likely to take effect from September 2016 and would impact on staff, resources and the use of the estate.  Much would depend on how strong a steer the new Presiding Officer chose to give and the makeup of the new Business Committee.

The Board agreed that consideration would need to be given to staff resourcing and linked to the current capacity planning work, for example, around longer working weeks, or shorter recesses. Consistent communication was also needed in relation to the current constraints and the need for a greater number of Members.

Action: Heads of service to ensure their staff are aware of the implications of the suggestions within the Legacy report.
