Intergovernmental Organisations Committee

Lord Soley

The Ad Hoc Intergovernmental Organisations Select Committee was set up late last year. I had argued the case for a select committee to examine the way the government uses taxpayers money with intergovernmental organisations and to consider how contemporary issues of international policy are addressed through United Kingdom membership of intergovernmental organisations (excluding the European Union), including their impact and effectiveness and value for money.

We have started our first enquiry on how we use intergovernmental organisations to deal with communicable diseases.

So on monday there was an opportunity to draw attention to this new enquiry in Questions and I duly took advantage of that!
