Cardiff Airport

receiving evidence

The Fourth Assembly Public Accounts Committee undertook an inquiry into the Welsh Government’s acquisition and ownership of Cardiff Airport following publication of the Auditor General for Wales report (PDF 3MB) (27 January 2016). That Committee published its report into The Welsh Government’s acquisition and ownership of Cardiff Airport (PDF 458KB) in March 2016.

Due to time restraints, the Welsh Government did not respond to the recommendations contained in the Committee’s Report at the end of the Fourth Assembly. The previous Committee recommended in its Legacy Report, that its successor Committee considers the Welsh Government response when available and seeks an update on the implementation of the recommendations in autumn 2016.

The Committee considered the Welsh Government response during an evidence session in November 2016.  The Committee continued to monitor progress at the Airport in both evidence sessions and correspondence with the Welsh Government between 2017 and 2019.

The Committee held a further evidence session with Cardiff Airport in summer 2019 and scrutinised the Welsh Government in September 2019. Following that session, The Committee Chair wrote to the Welsh Government and the detailed response will was considered in November 2019.

The Committee held a further evidence session with Cardiff Airport in spring 2020 and is scheduled to return to the issue with the Welsh Government later in 2020.
