We welcome receiving correspondence in Welsh. Any correspondence received in Welsh will be answered in Welsh and corresponding in Welsh will not lead to a delay in responding.
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.
To contact a minister in their separate role as your constituency Assembly Member visit the National Assembly for Wales (external link).
If you are an elected representative (including Assembly Members, members of Parliament, members of the European Parliament and councillors), see below for information about writing to ministers and how your correspondence will be processed.
