NEW Select Committee on House of Commons Reform

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by thingy, Sep 8, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The House of Commons are to establish a NEW Select Committee on House of Commons Reform.

    The Committee has to report no later than 13 November 2009 on four distinct matters:

    (i) the appointment of members and chairmen of select committees

    (ii) the appointment of the Chairman and Deputy Chairmen of Ways and Means

    (iii) scheduling business in the House

    (iv) enabling the public to initiate debates and proceedings in the House.

    The Committee has decided that in view of the very tight timetable it 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, it is not seeking separate views on that specific matter.

    How to submit evidence

    Written evidence should be sent by 12 October 2009 to [email protected], or in writing to:

    Clerk to the Committee
    House of Commons Reform Committee
    Journal Office
    House of Commons
    London SW1P 3JA.

    Please note

    Each submission should:

    o begin with a short summary in bullet point form
    o have numbered paragraphs
    o be in Word format or a rich text format with as little use of colour or logos as possible.
