New Standing Order — Consideration of Orders to Abolish, Merge or Modify Public Bodies — 19 Jan 2012 at 15:05
The majority of MPs voted in favour of creating a new House of Commons standing order to set out which committee of the House of Commons is charged with considering orders to abolish, merge or modify public bodies made under the powers within Part 1 of the Public Bodies Act 2011.
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.
The Standing Order approved in the vote also allows the Liaison Committee to designate an alternative select committee to consider a specific order.
