Regional Select Committees (Membership)
Business of the House
Alan Duncan (Shadow Leader of the House of Commons, Parliament; Rutland and Melton, Conservative)
We are against supporting the nomination of Members to the Committees because we do not accept the structure to which they are being nominated. Indeed, it would be far better to have regional Grand Committees to which anyone who is elected in a region could go to argue their case. That would provide a far better structure than having five or nine Members holding a region to account.
