Committee discusses parliamentary scrutiny of regulators

The Industry and Regulators Committee will hold a session with Dr Hannah White, Deputy Director of the Institute for Government, to discuss how parliamentary committees scrutinise regulators. The Committee will examine the effectiveness of select committee scrutiny, how scrutiny may need to change following the UK’s exit from the EU, and the relationship between scrutiny and regulators’ independence. The Committee will also discuss how to measure the performance of regulators.
