Consultation on the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on the agriculture and fisheries sectors, food supply, animal welfare, climate change and the environment

Purpose of the consultation

The Committee is undertaking a consultation on the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on the agriculture and fisheries sectors, food supply, animal welfare, climate change and the environment.


The Committee is eager to hear your views on the impact of the outbreak in Wales. The Committee will examine the response by the Welsh Government and relevant public bodies, as well as consider the impact on relevant sectors and professions. The Wales response in the wider UK context will also be considered.


The Committee would welcome your views on the following:


  • the scale and impact of the pandemic on your work and/or sector


  • how Welsh Government action to date has helped to combat the impact of the pandemic


  • what further steps the Welsh Government should take


  • any other areas within our remit you wish to draw to our attention


How to send us your views


Given current circumstances there is no fixed deadline by which to submit your views – we ask you to share them with us as soon as you are able so that we can follow things up in as timely a way as possible.


We do not expect detailed or lengthy evidence papers, a short email about your views on, and experiences of, the impact of the pandemic is enough, and we will get in touch with you directly if there’s anything we want to understand more fully.


You can submit your views by emailing


How we use your information: As a matter of course, we publish all views we receive. Evidence submitted in response to this consultation will be published on a rolling basis. Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees for further information.
