The National Assembly for Wales is currently in dissolution until after the election on 5 May 2016.

Dissolution is the official term for the end of a parliamentary session. It occurs before elections to the National Assembly for Wales take place, as the seats of existing Assembly Members must be vacated before they can be contested in the election.

Throughout dissolution there are no Assembly Members and so there will be no Assembly business, such as committee or Plenary meetings during this time.

The Fifth Assembly will begin after election day on Thursday 5 May 2016.
