Abstract

The Liaison Committee was formally established in 1980, following the creation of
departmental select committees in 1979. However, since 1967 select committee chairs
had met to co-ordinate administrative matters. The Liaison Committee comprises all the chairs of select committees in the House of Commons. It considers matters relating to select committees and has administrative, advisory and co-coordinating roles. It advises House authorities on select committee matters; determines which select committee reports are debated; considers issues facing committees; reviews committee practice; and takes oral evidence from the Prime Minister
