Review of the Determination for the Sixth Senedd

Purpose of the consultation

The Remuneration Board consulted on the Review of the Determination for the Sixth Senedd in December 2020. They sought views on the proposals outlined in the consultation document (PDF 1MB).


The Determination for the Sixth Senedd was published on 4 June 2020 and came into force on the first day following the Sixth Senedd election.


The Senedd has seen significant changes in its powers, responsibilities and expectations of the institution and its Members over the last two decades. In addition to meeting the demands of constitutional change, Members of the Sixth Senedd are also likely to face the challenge of representing their constituents and holding the government to account against the backdrop of

a continuing global health crisis and the associated economic, environmental and social impact.


As a new Board (established in September 2020), there were several outstanding issues to consider to finalise the Determination for the next Senedd term in light of the exceptional circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic. The proposals set out in the consultation document intended to provide greater clarity to Members and their staff in these times of uncertainty.


The proposals in the consultation document reflect the Board’s emphasis on value for money and taking decisions which are appropriate within the context of the wider financial circumstances of Wales, while facilitating the work of Members.


The importance of fostering an effective and appropriate working relationship between the Board and Members and their staff is clear.
