Committee Directorate

The Committee Directorate supports the work of Public Bill Committees which consider the details of particular Bills, and Select Committees which scrutinise the work of Government departments.

Much of the work of the House of Commons and the House of Lords takes place in committees, made up of around 10 to 50 MPs or Lords.

These committees examine issues in detail, from government policy and proposed new laws, to wider topics like the economy.

Contact details for individual committees are listed on the Committees A-Z pages.
