I take the hon. Gentleman’s question to be referring to bodies whose membership includes Members of the House. On this understanding, the following bodies have lay members:

There are also two statutory bodies whose secretariats are based in the House of Commons and whose membership includes Members and non-Members:

There are also two bicameral bodies whose membership includes Members and non-Members:

  • The Shadow Sponsor Board responsible for commissioning the Restoration and Renewal Programme
  • Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology Board
