Minutes of Evidence

This page lists all the proceedings of the Committee for Social Development during the current mandate that were reported by Hansard for publication. Committee Minutes of Evidence are published within three working days of the proceedings covered, excluding days on which the full Assembly sits.

Please note that Minutes of Evidence are not produced for all meetings of the Committee or indeed the entirety of those meetings. Generally, Minutes of Evidence are produced for those meetings, or parts of meetings, that involve the consideration of legislation or the taking of evidence as part of a Committee inquiry.
