Inquiry into Cross-Party Groups

The Standards of Conduct Committee is currently undertaking an inquiry into Lobbying, and agreed to conduct a concurrent inquiry into Cross-Party Groups, given the crossover in the subject matter.


CPGs were last reviewed as part of the Fourth Senedd’s Standards of Conduct Committee inquiry into lobbying in 2013.


The current Rules on the operation of Cross-Party Groups were agreed by Senedd resolution in June 2013 and replaced the ‘Presiding Officer’s Guidelines on the Formation of Cross-Party Groups’ which were made on 10 March 2004.
