Scope of the inquiry

The Procedure Committee is looking at Supply procedure, the procedure whereby the House authorises the Government to spend public money raised through taxation. This will be a priority for the Procedure Committee in this Parliament. The present procedures were highlighted during debates on the passage of the new English votes for English laws Standing Orders in July and October 2015.

As its first inquiry in this field, the Committee will examine the House’s procedures for examining the Estimates, the formal requests for authorisation of expenditure made to the House by the Government, and passing the legislation which authorises this expenditure.
