Select Committees are bodies that work in both Houses of Parliament. Their role is to scrutinise the work of Ministers and government departments. Most Select Committees work by undertaking inquiries on specific topics.
Stakeholders are invited to submit written and are sometimes invited to give oral evidence to Committees. The results of these inquiries are written up in a report which is published. Many require a response from the government within 60 days.
