Making an Impact: Effective Parliamentary Committees

In this paper, Jacqui Smith reflects on her experience from both sides of the committee table – as an MP and as a minister – on the most effective ways for parliamentary committees to influence ministers and their ministries. Drawing on her time in government and parliament, as well as her work in a number of other countries, Jacqui makes several practical suggestions for improving committee performance and offers some personal reflections which will help committees to maximise their impact.
