The Committee ceased to exist from midnight on 31 March 2011.
The Petitions Committee published a booklet on 29 March looking back at the Committee’s work over the past four years and looking at how the petitions process worked.
The Petition Committee’s last meeting before dissolution was on 29 March. Petitions that are still open on 31 March will continue into the next Assembly. However, as no committees will exist during dissolution, consideration of petitions will start again only when the new Committee has been appointed.
Please contact the petitions team, if you have any questions about this. For more information about the Assembly elections please see For more information about the Assembly elections please see here.
The Petitions team prepared a video explaining the e-petitions process.
