National Assembly for Wales Commissioner for Standards Measure 2009

Committee proposed Measure – Introduced by Jeff Cuthbert AM, Chair of the Standards of Conduct Committee

About the proposed Measure

The National Assembly for Wales Commissioner for Standards Measure will place the position of the Commissioner for Standards on a statutory basis. It will ensure that the Commissioner, once appointed, is seen to be totally independent of the Assembly and therefore able to investigate complaints against Assembly Members with complete objectivity. It will also provide the Commissioner with powers to enable him or her to investigate complaints rigorously, including the power to require third parties to provide relevant information.
