The Welsh Government has expressed its desire to take on the responsibility of managing the response to civil emergencies, which is a devolved power in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
But the committee has recommended that the Welsh Government clarify what resources it requires to take on such responsibilities from the UK Government.
