Lichfield and Burntwood MP releases new video explaining how House of Commons committees work

Lichfield and Burntwood MP Michael Fabricant has released a new video explaining how parts of the House of Commons work.

He had previously outlined the role of whips in a Youtube piece with comedian Mark Dolan.

The latest video looks at how the committee system works.

The Conservative MP said: “Trying to explain the complexity and nuances of the House of Commons is not easy.

“For example in the Commons there are hundreds of committees. Some are All Party Groups – I am a member of several including one concerned with Ancient Woodlands which are being demolished by HS2. Then there are Public Bill Committees which scrutinise legislation line by line, and there are the Select Committees which overview the work of Government Departments.

“These videos are not meant to emulate the Open University. Instead they are meant to be factual, but fun.”

A volunteer wrote this. Say thanks with a coffee.
