Purpose of the consultation

The Finance Committee is undertaking a consultation on the draft Public Services Ombudsman (Wales) Bill.


This follows on from the Finance Committee’s inquiry to consider extending the powers of the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales.


In May 2015, the Committee published its report on Consideration of Powers: Public Services Ombudsman for Wales and recommended that a Bill should be introduced into the Assembly. The Committee agreed to consult on a new draft Bill which would re-enact much of the existing Public Services Ombudsman (Wales) Act 2005 but with new provisions recommended by the Committee in its report.


Invitation to contribute to the inquiry

The Committee welcomes responses in Welsh or English from both individuals and organisations and will hold oral evidence sessions in due course.


Submissions should be no longer than five sides of A4, with numbered paragraphs, and should focus on matters set out above. Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees.
