​Emergency Questions

Assembly Members may make a request at any time to ask an Emergency Question to a member of the Welsh Government or Assembly Commission during Plenary meetings. However, Emergency Questions are only allowed if the Presiding Officer (or the Deputy Presiding Officer if a question relates to the Assembly Commission) is satisfied that the question is of urgent national significance.

Emergency Questions were introduced in the Assembly in May 2017, alongside Topical Questions​. These replace the procedure for asking Urgent Questions.

A list of all the requests for Urgent Questions made in the Assembly up until May 2017 is available on the Urgent Questions pages.
