A petition is a way of asking the National Assembly to consider any issue, problem or proposal that the Assembly has the power to do something about.
The Assembly’s rules mean that any petition that the Presiding Officer decides is admissible must be considered by the Assembly. The Assembly has set up a Petitions Committee to consider admissible petitions and to decide what action should be taken.

Petitions can be started and signed through the National Assembly for Wales website www.assemblywales.org. All petitions, both written and online, then go through a process to assess their eligibility before relevant ones are considered by the Assembly's Petitions Committee.
Previous issues considered by the Committee include banning single use plastic bags, saving a Cardiff pub and establishing a Wales-wide cycle network.
