Liaison Committee to question the Prime Minister

17 May 2011

The Liaison Committee will take evidence from the Prime Minister David Cameron, continuing the Committee’s practice of questioning the Prime Minister on domestic and international issues.

The questioning will focus on two themes as follows:

  • Prospects for growth in the economy
  • Overseas intervention and the military capacity to support it

The meeting will be at 4pm, in the Grimond Room, Portcullis House; it is expected to last for up to one and a half hours

This represents a change of approach for the Committee, with a smaller group of Committee Chairs questioning the Prime Minister.

Chair of the Liaison Committee, Rt Hon Sir Alan Beith MP, said:

"We welcome the fact that the Prime Minister has agreed to appear before us three times a year rather than two. These shorter sessions focusing on fewer topics should enable us to question him in greater depth, and in a more concentrated way."

The Liaison Committee is made up of 33 Chairs of Select Committees.
