Previously called Standing Committees, Public Bill Commitees study proposed legislation (Bills) in detail, debating each clause and reporting any amendments to the Commons for further debate.
There are at least 16 MPs on a Committee, and the proportion of parties reflects the House of Commons, so the government always has a majority.
[Mr. Eric Illsley in the Chair]
I beg to move amendment No. 1, in clause 1, page 1, line 4, leave out '£3,700 million' and insert '£3,000 million'.
