Will the First Minister provide any legal advice on received by Welsh Government over the status of Plaid Cymru under the Co-operation Agreement?

Answered by First Minister | Answered on 28/02/2022

As is usual practice and has been stated previously, legal advice, as regards Civil Service governance arrangements, was provided to the Permanent Secretary from the Welsh Government Legal Services Department.

Ministers have regular bilateral meetings with Designated Members to discuss collaboratively the policy areas contained within the Co-operation Agreement. I also meet regularly with the Leader of Plaid Cymru via the Oversight Board. Ministers meet with Plaid Cymru spokespeople as appropriate. Minutes of the Co-operation Agreement Oversight Board will be published in due course.
