Ministers may be contacted by email or post. We aim to reply within 17 working days.

Each Minister’s biographical details page lists the devolved matters for which the Minister has responsibility.  If matters are not listed there then this means that they are not devolved to Wales and remain the responsibility of the UK Government in London.

Ministers receive a lot of correspondence and cannot always reply personally. You may receive a reply on their behalf from a civil servant.

Correspondence that is copied to a number of Ministers will normally receive a response from the Minister with portfolio responsibility for the subject matter, or an official on their behalf.

Letters copied to Ministers do not usually receive a response and will be filed for information.

Organisers of campaigns will generally receive a response from the appropriate Minister. Campaign letters and postcards will be filed.

If you want to contact a Minister in their separate role as your constituency Assembly Member you can visit the National Assembly for Wales website (external link) for contact details.
