The Deputy Presiding Officer chaired this item as the Llywydd is the Member in charge of the Bill.

 

Business Managers considered the paper and whether the responsible committee for the purpose of considering the general principles of the Bill should be the Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee. Darren Millar noted the conflict of interest of one Member of CLA also being a Member of the Assembly Commission, and suggested that the Bill be referred to the External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee. It was also noted that that Committee included a Commission Member.

 

Given that the immediate decision is to consult on the proposed timetable for the Bill, Business Managers agreed to consult with both CLA and EAAL before deciding on which committee to refer it to.

 

On the issue of the proposed timetable the Trefnydd raised the potential impact on the Government’s Local Elections Bill if there were to be any delay in introducing the Senedd and Elections (Wales) Bill.
