Work Completed by the Committee







The Committee was established on 28 June 2016 to scrutinise the First Minister on any matter relevant to the exercise of the functions of the Welsh Government.


The Committee has agreed to meet in public once during each Senedd term and in different locations around Wales where possible. It also agreed to take a strategic approach and to focus on areas related to the First Minister’s specific portfolio responsibilities or his leadership role for the Welsh Government.
