Following the dissolution of Parliament on 12th April, all Select Committees have ceased to exist unless or until the House renominates them following the election on 6th May. There are no Chairs or Members of Committees. The information on these pages refers to Committees and their work before Parliament was dissolved. If there are Committee Reports to which Government Responses are outstanding, these may be responded to in the next Parliament.
Welcome to the Public Administration Committee's website.
We are a committee of eleven Members of Parliament, appointed by the House of Commons and drawn from the three largest political parties. The Committee examines the quality and standards of administration within the Civil Service and scrutinizes the reports of the Parliamentary and Health Ombudsman.
We work principally by undertaking inquiries. We choose our own subjects of inquiry and seek evidence from a wide range of groups and individuals with relevant interests and experience. We produce reports setting out our findings and making recommendations to the Government. This site contains material relating to the inquiries we have conducted since 1997.
