Innovation, Universities, Science and Skills Committee

The Innovation, Universities, Science and Skills Committee has been replaced by the Science and Technology Committee.

The Science and Technology Committee was re-established on 1 October 2009. There was previously a Science and Technology Committee which was wound-up in 2007 and replaced by the Innovation, Universities, Science and Skills Committee, which scrutinised both the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) and science. Following the reorganisation of Whitehall announced by the Prime Minister in June 2009 DIUS became part of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the House of Commons re-established a Science and Technology Committee focused on science. (There is a new, separate select committee, Business, Innovation and Skills, scrutinising BIS.)
