P-05-719 Welsh Assembly Funding of Services



This petition was submitted by Harry Hayfield, having collected 21 signatures.


Text of the Petition

We, the undersigned, call on the Assembly to fund critical services in Wales that receive no government funding (such as the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).


Additional information

In 2015, the RNLI saved 9,763 people from the waters of the United Kingdom (of which 1,029 people were saved in the waters of Wales). The RSPCA received across the UK over a million calls to their helpline in 2015 and secured nearly 1,800 convictions for animal cruelty and yet receive no funding from the Westminster Government despite having to enforce Westminster Government laws.

I believe that in 2016 this is wrong and that the devolved institutions should fund the hard work that these organisations do for the people of Wales.




This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 29/11/2016.

The Committee agreed to close the petition on the basis that it is not the Committee’s role to suggest to third sector organisations that they seek funding from the Welsh Government.

The Committee also agreed to write to the petitioner suggesting that he may wish to share the Cabinet Secretary’s letter with any organisations he feels would benefit from information about funding from the Welsh Government or local authorities.

Full details of the consideration of this petitions by the committee and related documents can be seen on the Meetings tab above.

It was first considered by the Petitions Committee on 29/11/2016.
