Select Committee’s

April 6, 2011

Mr Speaker raises an example about how someone concerned with changes to a bill that might affect work around Mental Health, they should contact the Select Committee for Health.

You might ask the Select Committee to do an investigation into the issue if you believe it is relevant. You might like to be present, you might like to submit evidence, you might even want to take part by giving oral evidence to the Committee.

Mr Bercow raises an interesting point about how the chairs of Select Committee’s are now elected rather than appointed by the government they are meant to be scrutinising.  This means they are no longer ‘in-hoc’ and can be truly independent.
