Posted on 05/04/2014 by Ed Hammond. Tags: ,

This guide is about membership of scrutiny committees andinformal scrutiny “task and finish” groups. It looks at four distinct issues –the use of co-optees (at committee, and as members of T&F groups), minority party chairing, membership of T&F groups and having “Cabinet assistants” as members of scrutiny committees. It also covers political management/whipping.
