Senedd recalled today to allow a statement by the First Minister on coronavirus restrictions
The Senedd has been recalled today, in a virtual manner, to allow a statement by the First Minister Mark Drakeford and then questions, on coronavirus restrictions.
In a short statement it was announced The Llywydd had agreed to recall the Senedd for a “fully virtual statement on COVID-19 restrictions from the First Minister” with time for Senedd Members to then question the First Minister.
The detail of the recall notice states, “In accordance with Standing Order 12.3A, I have agreed to summon the Senedd to consider a matter of urgent public importance.”
Welsh Conservative Leader Andrew Davies wrote a letter to the Llwydd calling for the move, saying “With power must come accountability. I’m calling for a recall of the Senedd so we can scrutinise and vote on the Welsh Government’s restrictions.”
The session will take place shortly after the First Minister holds a public briefing at 12:15PM to detail the latest situation in Wales, with some speculation further guidance and restrictions could emerge in the hospitality sector, much like Scotland has announced earlier today.
