Role - Armed Forces Bill Select Committee 2015

An Armed Forces Bill is required every five years in order to continue in force the provisions of the current Service legislation relating to Service discipline, and to make any amendments.

The Armed Forces Bill Select Committee 2015 goes through the Bill formally, clause by clause, and makes amendments if it wishes; it may also take formal evidence and make visits.

As well as reporting the Bill to the House the select committee may make a Special Report to the House of its findings and recommendations.
