Correspondence with Ministers

The primary purpose of the House of Lords European Union Select Committee is to scrutinise EU law in draft before the Government takes a position on it in the EU Council of Ministers. This scrutiny is carried out by each Sub-Committee through correspondence with Ministers - letters to the Government to express views on documents and discuss matters of policy.

The procedure of sending a letter may be adopted for a number of reasons, including that the points at issue do not warrant a full report, or to follow up a previous report. Such correspondence, including Ministerial replies and other materials, is published where appropriate.
