In this episode Kate and I discuss parliamentary committees, what they are, why they exist and who gets to be on one! Why aren’t they more widely known in society?

Things we discussed:

  • Are committees in the Constitution? It turns out there is a passing reference to privileges of members of each house and their committees in Section 49. Although the Constitution doesn’t confer any specific powers to committees.
  • Committee website is here.
