Select Committee on Modernisation of the House of Commons Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Letter from Mr Andrew Tyrie MP to the Chairman of the Committee

  I am writing to lend my support to those who have been arguing for the strengthening of parliament and, in particular, of Select Committees. I believe in strong government but I think governments should be forced to explain their actions, to parliament as well as the media. The lion's share of this work is currently done by the latter; parliament has been relegated to a bit part. I do hope that your tenure as Leader will bring some redress.
