Parliamentary Select Committees
We have the expertise and experience required to advise those who have been requested to attend and give evidence to parliamentary select committees. We are able to meet with clients beforehand, brief them and explain the process and procedural rules.
Our specialised team represents large organisations, many of whom have significant turnover and large contracts with central government departments. We understand the importance of risk management and how appearances before select committees have the very real potential to blemish reputations and affect future business.
We assist in training, preparing preparatory letters and statements with a view to addressing likely areas of MP or Peer questioning. We ensure that those called to attend are well-prepared to deal with the style of questioning to be faced and provide constructive responses. We will also assist clients to provide written responses where questions have been asked and time to respond has been given.
