About the Speaker's Committee
The Speaker’s Committee is a committee in the House of Commons, made up of members of parliament (MPs).
It looks at what we do, and makes recommendations and decisions about some areas of our work.
Selecting our commissioners
The Speaker’s Committee is involved in selecting our commissioners. It considers the candidates, and makes recommendations to the House of Commons.
Approving our plans and budgets
After a new UK Parliament is elected we submit a five-year corporate plan to the Speaker’s Committee for approval. Once agreed, it is laid in Parliament.
For each year of the corporate plan, we submit an annual budget and corporate plan to the Speaker’s Committee. This includes an estimate of our income and spending for the year.
The Speaker’s Committee reviews these documents and makes any necessary changes before presenting them to the House of Commons for approval.
The Speaker nominates an MP to answer questions from other MPs about our work.
At the moment, our MP is Bridget Phillipson.
