European Scrutiny Committee

Before the 2010 General Election the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee met in secret in spite of the Committee voting for its meetings to be held in public.   David Cameron promised that it would meet in public.  After the General Election it did meet in public, but then it decided that it would meet in private.   The public have a right to know what is going on in their parliament.
The European Scrutiny Committee of the House of Commons should meet in public.


  1. The European Scrutiny Committee should certainly meet in public and let us know what is going on.

  2. I completely agree. It is a disgrace that the public cannot see and hear what is going on with the EU. Maybe they are ashamed to admit that so many of our laws are simply given to parliament, with no option but to comply. Not so much scrutiny as surrender.
