COVID-19 and its impact on matters relating to the Public Accounts and Public Administration Committee’s remit



The Fifth Senedd Public Accounts Committee undertook an inquiry into the Covid-19 outbreak in Wales during summer and autumn 2020. The inquiry considered the impact of coronavirus, and the response to it, on the following areas:

  • The economic impact of Covid-19 (Cross referenced to the inquiry on Welsh Government Financial Support for Business);
  • COVID-19: impacts for the Welsh Government’s Education and Public Services Group;
  • The Welsh Government’s response to Covid-19;
  • Impact on Health, Education and Local Government; and
  • Impact on the Senedd Commission.


During spring 2021, the Auditor General for Wales published a number of Reports related to the pandemic which the Public Accounts and Public Administration Committee considered and discussed in evidence sessions with the Welsh Government.


During its meeting on 9 February 2022, the Committee agreed to seek further updates on Covid-19 recovery with the Welsh Government in autumn 2022.
