This publication is part of the CabGuide.

For detailed guidance about select committees, see paragraphs 7.108 to 7.122 of the Cabinet Manual, and the Public Service Commission’s guidance entitled Officials and Select Committees – Guidelines.

Departments may not make a formal submission to a select committee on a Bill or select committee inquiry without the express approval of the Cabinet Legislation Committee (LEG). Departments should submit a paper to LEG seeking approval of the text of the submission to LEG.

If a select committee requests written information from a department (not amounting to a formal submission), the department should clear the proposed request with its Minister.
