Select Committees & APPG's

Chris Davies MP is currently a member of the Welsh Affairs Select Committee and the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee (including the EFRA Sub Committee). Select Committees check and report on areas ranging from the work of government departments to economic affairs. House of Commons Select Committees are largely concerned with examining the work of government departments. There is a Commons Select Committee for each government department, examining three aspects: spending, policies and administration. The committee members decide upon the line of inquiry and then gather written and oral evidence. Findings are reported to the Commons, printed, and published on the Parliament website. The government then usually has 60 days to reply to the committee's recommendations.
