This committee from the Fourth Assembly has been dissolved. New committees will be formed during the Fifth Assembly
The Committee was established on 25 November 2014 with a remit to examine the policy and legislative considerations surrounding the removal of the “reasonable punishment” defence in relation to battery of a child, further to section 58 of the Children Act 2004. The Committee’s remit also stated that it would be dissolved following the debate on its report.
The membership of the committee was not subsequently agreed by the Assembly. Consequently it did not meet.
