Committee history

On 14 July, the Prime Minister announced that elements of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills would merge with the Department for Energy and Climate Change to become the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. On 11 October 2016, the House of Commons Standing Orders governing the committee structure were amended to allow the Committee to be renamed in order to reflect this change. The Committee was renamed on 17 October 2016 with the same membership as the previous Business, Innovation and Skills Committee.
