National Assembly for Wales Cross Party Waterways Group

The Assembly Cross Party Waterways Group is one of the best attended and most successful of all the groups and has been meeting since the first Session of the National Assembly

View this in Welsh

Cross-Party Groups may be set up by Assembly Members in respect of any subject area relevant to the Assembly. A group must include Members from three political party groups represented within the Assembly. Cross-Party Groups are not formal Assembly groupings and are not, therefore, bound by any of the Assembly's Standing Orders. They have no formal role in policy development.

The Assembly Cross Party Group on Waterways was initiated by Brian Hancock, AM for Islwyn in the First Assembly. It is currently chaired by Nick Ramsay AM for Monmouth, Shadow Minister for Business, Enterprise & Technology and Chair of the Enterprise and Business Committee.


The Assembly Cross Party Group on Waterways meets three or four times a year and also arranges site visits from time to time.
