Procedure Committee

Commons Select Committee

The Procedure Committee considers the practice and procedure of the House in the conduct of its public business. It is appointed under Standing Order No. 147. It can make recommendations to the House about the operation of the House’s Standing Orders for public business, and any other aspect of House procedure and practice (as generally described in Erskine May). It is chaired by Karen Bradley MP. You can follow the Committee on Twitter @CommonsProcCom
