Purpose of the consultation

The Committee’s terms of reference for its inquiry are to:

  • To understand the importance of diversity among local councillors, including the effect on public engagement, debate and decision making.
  • To understand key barriers to attracting a more diverse pool of candidates for local government elections.
  • To explore areas of innovation and good practice that may help increase diversity in local government.
  • To explore the potential impact of the proposals in the Welsh Government’s Green Paper, Strengthening Local Government to increasing diversity in Council chambers

Providing Written Evidence

The National Assembly for Wales has two official languages, Welsh and English.

In line with the Assembly’s Official Languages Scheme, the Committee requests that documents or written responses to consultations intended for publication or use in National Assembly proceedings are submitted bilingually. When documents or written responses are not submitted bilingually, we will publish in the language submitted, stating that it has been received in that language only.

We expect other organisations to implement their own standards or schemes and to comply with their statutory obligation.

Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees.

If you should wish to submit your views on the terms of reference, please submit them to the clerk by Monday 10 September 2018.
