How do House of Commons Select Committees work?

This short film explains the role and impact of select committees of the House of Commons, their membership, how they conduct inquiries, what it's like to be a witness and how you can get involved.

Select Committee Inquiries

Select Committees carry out inquiries on areas ranging from the work of government departments to economic affairs. The results of these inquiries are public and many require a response from the Government.

Stages of an inquiry

Most, but not all, Select Committee inquiries are conducted as follows:

  • Written evidence called for
  • Oral evidence sessions held
  • Report published
  • Response published

Not all inquiries result in a Report
