Current EU Committee work

The European Union Committee, assisted by six Sub-Committees, considers EU documents and other EU-related matters in advance of decisions being taken on them. It aims to hold the Government to account for its actions at EU level. The six Sub-Committees deal with different policy areas. The Select Committee and its Sub-Committees scrutinise proposals, conduct inquiries and prepare reports.

  • Remit: The Sub-Committee's remit includes competitiveness, research and innovation, the services industry and the free movement of goods and services. Scrutiny of the single market, youth unemployment and infrastructure proposals also fall to the Sub-Committee.
  • Latest report: Brexit: competition
  • EU Internal Market Sub-Committee
