The Petitions Committee was established on 28 June 2016 to carry out the functions of the responsible committee set out in Standing Order 23.

Its role is to consider all admissible petitions that are submitted by the public. Petitions have to be about issues that the National Assembly had powers to take action on. The petitions process enables the public to highlight issues and directly influence the work of the National Assembly. Its specific functions are set out in Standing Order 23.
