The local government and public services committee of the National Assembly for Wales is conducting an inquiry into the operation of the public services regulation and inspection regime in Wales. To inform this work, the committee would welcome written submissions of evidence from interested parties.

The terms of reference of the inquiry are:

To consider the operation of the public services regulation and inspection regime in Wales, including the roles and accountabilities of inspectorates, their interaction with inspected bodies and the added value the regime brings to public service improvement.

Committee chair Ann Jones said: 'The people of Wales deserve public services of the highest quality. Historically inspection has focused on the ability of service providers to comply with regulations and meet minimum standards, but the emphasis is now on the regulation and inspection as a catalyst for improving public services. It is within this context that the committee is undertaking its inquiry, focusing on the added value of the regulation and inspection regime.'

The committee has written to interested parties across Wales asking them for their views. Following consideration of the written submissions it receives, the committee may invite further oral evidence. If any individuals or organisations want to contribute, written submissions should be sent, bilingually if possible, by email to Local-Govn.comm@Wales.gsi.gov.uk or posted to the address above to arrive by 27 August 2004. The committee will make contributions public unless otherwise requested.
