Business Committee Minutes

The Business Committee is responsible for the organisation of Assembly Business. It is the only Committee whose functions and remit is set out in Standing Orders. Its role is to “facilitate the effective organisation of Assembly proceedings” as stated in Standing Order 11.1.

The Presiding Officer chairs the meetings, which are attended by the Minister for Government Business and a Business Manager from each of the parties represented in the Assembly.

The Committee usually meets weekly when the Assembly is in session, to comment on proposals for the organisation of Government business and to determine the organisation of Assembly business in Plenary.


The minutes of each private meeting are published in English and Welsh within 1 week of their being agreed by the Committee – these minutes have now moved to the Business Committee Meeting Pages
