Questions to the First Minister - Fourth Assembly
Assembly Members (AMs) may
ask Oral Assembly Questions to the First Minister about any matter falling
within their areas of responsibility.
The First Minister answers
questions each week. Oral questions are answered during a designated Question
Time in Plenary.
The Presiding Officer
conducts a ballot to determine the names of Members who may table questions.
Each Member may enter their name into a ballot.
The Member selected must then
table their oral question at least five days before the question is due to be
answered. A computer randomly selects the order in which the questions are to
be asked in Plenary.
