Statement by the Presiding Officer – Llwydd – regarding the name change.
Today I become the Member of the Senedd (MS) or Aelod o’r Senedd (AS) for Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney. I am a Member of Senedd Cymru – the Welsh Parliament.
Like most people I will generally use the term Senedd.
The Presiding Officer has issued a statement about the change and you can read her letter here:
“with full law-making powers and the ability to vary taxes, the new name reflects the Senedd’s constitutional status as a national parliament”.
