Have your say: select committee inquiries

Select committees are small, cross-party groups of MPs or members of the Lords (or both) set up to investigate an issue. Their findings can influence future government decisions.

Select committees usually launch each new investigation with a call for evidence - this is an opportunity for anyone with an interest in the topic, or relevant experience, to send in their views.
