The Committees of the National Assembly are seeking information to inform their scrutiny of the Welsh Government’s 2019-20 Draft Budget proposals. We are interested in exploring expectations of the 2019-20 budget, including financial readiness for the 2019-20 year and the impact of the 2018-19 budget.
We do not know as yet, what the draft budget proposals will look like, as they will not be published until October 2018. The Finance Committee looks at the Welsh Government’s budget from a strategic, overarching perspective. We also work with the other Assembly Committees to ensure that proposals for specific departments, or cabinet portfolios are considered in detail. Committees will each undertake their own focussed evidence sessions in order to examine the areas of the budget that fall within their respective remits.
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.
