Work programme – Committee on Senedd Electoral Reform

The Committee published its report, Senedd reform: The next steps (PDF, 5MB) in September 2020. It also published a summary of its recommendations (PDF, 113KB).


The Committee was established on 18 September 2019 to examine the recommendations of the Expert Panel on Assembly Electoral Reform. The Committee was dissolved following a debate on its report on 7 October 2020.


The establishment of the Committee was proposed by the Llywydd following the Senedd Commission’s decision in June 2019 not to introduce legislation during the Fifth Senedd in respect of Phase 2 of its Senedd Reform programme.


The Committee’s objectives were to:

  • consolidate and add to the existing evidence base,
  • inform and engage the public, and
  • outline a roadmap for reform to inform political parties’ consideration of their policy positions and manifestos for the 2021 Senedd election.
