What Select Committees are Helen on?
Helen is a member of the Ecclesiastical Committee and the Procedure Committee.
The Ecclesiastical Committee examines reports from the governing body of the Church of England, and researches it before submitting the report to both Houses. This information from the report can play a role in drafting or amending legislature. The Ecclesiastical Committee is a joint committee, which means that it is a committee made up of members from multiple organisations.
The Procedure Committee examines the way in which Parliament conducts public business - examples of this include recent inquiries into term limits for committee chairs and proxy voting. They produce reports which are then examined by Parliament and can be used to amend procedure.
