Paper 10. Holding Government to Account

This Guide to Parliaments looks at how parliamentary committees undertake their oversight functions; notably how committees can use their oversight functions to make government accountable for its policies and laws, for the way it runs public services, and the way that it spends the public’s money.

This is the tenth paper in our Guide To Parliaments series, written for us by GPG Associate and parliamentary procedure specialist Alex Brazier. If you would like to read others in the series or any of our other publications, then visit our publications page here.
