Questions to the Leader of the House and Chief Whip (in respect of her portfolio responsibilities) - Fifth Senedd

Assembly Members (AMs) may ask Oral Assembly Questions to the Leader of the House and Chief Whip about any matter falling within their areas of responsibility.

The Leader of the House answers questions once every four weeks that the Assembly meets in Plenary. Oral questions are answered during a designated Question Time in Plenary.

The Llywydd conducts a ballot to determine the names of Members who may table questions. Each Member may enter their name into a ballot.

The Member selected must then table their oral question at least five days before the question is due to be answered. A computer randomly selects the order in which the questions are to be asked in Plenary.


Following the Cabinet Reshuffle on 13 December 2018, questions on most items in this portfolio are now answered by the Minster for Economy and Transport
