The Welsh Political Week in 60 seconds

Monday kicks off with External Affairs Committee taking evidence from the Counsel General (Mick Antoniw) on Brexit. Over on the Public Accounts Committee, senior civil servants will be fielding touch questions about several controversial Welsh Government investments including Kancoat and the Cardiff – Ynys Mon flight.

On Tuesday, it’s the every varied Petitions Committee (which had become a very efficient affair under the Chairmanship Mike Hedges (Swansea East)(Lab)). Standards of Conduct Committee will also meet briefly to discuss the conclusions of the report by Commissioner for Standards (Gerard Elias) into lobbying in Cardiff Bay. Spoiler alert: he’s going to suggest a voluntary register for some organisations.

On Tuesday afternoon, AMs will hear statements on rural schools, employability, the Year of Legends and winter preparedness. There will also be a debate on the Children’s Commissioner for Wales’ Annual Report 2015/16 as well FMQs where Gareth Bennett will ask the First Minister if he has any plans to welcome the President Elect of the United States of America (Donald Trump) to Wales. #QTWTAIN

On Wednesday morning, Climate Change Committee meets in private while Culture while Welsh Language & Communications are holding a stakeholder session. Children, Young People & Education will be considering the Donaldson Review and Statutory Advocacy Provision.
