Committee news

  • The Committee disposed of all Stage 2 amendments to the Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill at its meeting on 25 November. Stage 3 of the Bill started on 26 November. The deadlines for the tabling amendments will be confirmed once the date for the Stage 3 proceedings appears on the Business Statement and Announcement. NB During Stage 2 proceedings, Committee agreed to amend the short title of the Bill from Safe Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill to Nurse Staffing Levels (Wales) Bill (amendment 35).
  • The Health and Social Care Committee will publish its report on the general principles of the Public Health (Wales) Bill on Monday 30 November. Although this is later than the deadline of 27 November agreed by the Business Committee, this decision will not have an impact on:
    • the timing of the Stage 1 Plenary debate, currently scheduled for 8 December
    • the deadlines for subsequent amending stages, should the general principles of the Bill be agreed by the Assembly.

The report will be published on the Bill’s webpage.
