Commons reform committee calls for evidence

September 8, 2009 at 3:15 pm Leave a comment

The Select Committee on House of Commons Reform will not take oral evidence, it has been announced.

The committee was established just before the summer recess and must report by November 13.

It will consider the appointment of members and chairmen of select committees and the three Deputy Speakers, scheduling business in the House and ways of enabling the public to initiate debates and proceedings in the Commons.

The Committee will remain until the end of the Parliament to consider other matters referred to it by MPs.

It was announced today that the committee, “in view of the very tight timetable, will not hear formal oral evidence but will proceed by detailed consideration of the matters referred to it”.

In view of the Procedure Committee’s intention to conduct an inquiry into the appointment of the Chairman and Deputy Chairmen of Ways and Means (ie: the Deputy Speakers), it is not seeking separate views on that specific matter.

Written evidence should be sent by October 12 to, or in writing to the Clerk to the Committee, House of Commons Reform Committee, Journal Office, House of Commons, SW1P 3JA.
