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


Letter from Mr Archy Kirkwood MP to the Chairman of the Committee

  I understand you are currently conducting an inquiry into select committees. I have received a copy of the letter sent to you by Chris Mullin and would wish to concur with the points he has made on pre-legislative scrutiny, pay and the size of committees.

  I would, however, add that I believe more staff resources should be made available to select committees so that they can meet the increasing demands placed upon them.
