Science and Technology Committee

Commons Select Committee

The work of many Government departments makes use of—or has implications for—science, engineering, technology and research. The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee exists to ensure that Government policies and decision-making are based on solid scientific evidence and advice. You can follow the Committee on Twitter @CommonsSTC.

These pages only show information for this committee from the start of 2020 onwards. Earlier information can be found on the previous version of the UK Parliament website.
