Following the Dissolution of Parliament on 12 April, all select committees have ceased to exist unless or until the House renominates them following the election on 6 May.

There are currently no chairs or members of committees. If there are committee Reports to which Government Responses are outstanding, these may be responded to in the next Parliament.
