Inquiry into the Registration and Declaration of Interests
Purpose of the consultation
The Standards of Conduct Committee is undertaking an inquiry into the Registration and Declaration of Interests.
The last substantial review of registration and declaration of interests took place in 2014. That review recommended that a system of declaring relevant interests be introduced to enhance transparency, as well as making some changes to categories such as blind trusts and shareholdings.
The Committee has agreed to review whether the arrangements for the registration and declaration of interests remain fit for purpose across Senedd Business.
The Committee would welcome your views on the questions posed in this consultation and anything else on the topic that you consider relevant. Please submit your response by 24 April 2023 to Seneddstandards@Senedd.wales.
