The Standing Order approved in this vote provided for the Select Committee responsible for scrutinising the work of the Department of the Minister who has laid the draft order to have the role of considering the order and that in the case of a draft order laid by a Minister in the Cabinet Office, consideration would be by the Select Committee on Public Administration.
