New Petitions System consultation launched, 13/6/07 [W]

A new petitions system which will enable members of the public to petition the National Assembly for Wales is being introduced. Members of the public will be able to petition the National Assembly to ask for action to be taken on the areas of policy for which it has responsibility and the Assembly will be required to act on those petitions if it is within its responsibility. 

The National Assembly has launched a consultation to ask for ideas about how the new system can work.  They are looking for ideas about how petitions could be submitted and what information and advice would be needed by those submitting them.

More information is available in the National Assembly for Wales press release.  Responses to the consultation should be directed to:

The Table Office
The National Assembly for Wales
Cardiff Bay
