Committee Chair, Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP, said
"The Committee feels that it will be most helpful to hear from Mr Herbert about why the Government believes that Mr Winsor is the right person for the job.
The Minister has made a number of public statements and it would be good to have these expended before we hear from Mr Winsor."
