Commons Select Committee

Welcome to the cross-party Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee. It is our responsibility to scrutinise the work of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and its associated public bodies, including the BBC. We examine government policy, spending and administration on behalf of the electorate and the House of Commons. It is chaired by Julian Knight MP. You can follow the Committee on Twitter @CommonsDCMS

The Committee has also a Sub-Committee to inquire into Online Harms and Disinformation. Find out more about the DCMS Sub-Committee.
