Yesterday the committee published a scathing report which said: 'We consider that No 10 Downing Street's refusal to allow Lord Birt to attend this committee to discuss the future of transport amounts to a deliberate attempt to undermine the departmental select committee system.
A much emphasised structural change has been the introduction of the departmental select committee system.
When in the 1987-92 Parliament the Department of Health and Social Security was divided into the Department of Health and the Department of Social Security, the relevant departmental select committee was likewise replaced with two committees.
Despite this Tony Newton, the Leader of the-House, was insistent that the departmental select committee system should reflect the new structure of central government.
Tam Dayell highlighted this issue when he questioned whether it would have a wide remit, enabling it to roam over the whole issue area of government responsibilities for science and technology and examine all relevant departments(7), or whether it would be constrained by its status as a departmental select committee.
While there was some disagreement over the structure of the departmental select committee system, the real controversy centred upon the selection of MPs to fill the 176 positions on the committees.
Any complaints about the balance of representation were drowned out by the controversy over the sudden introduction of the rule, in the selection of the Conservative members, which limited the maximum time that could be served on a departmental select committee to three Parliaments.
With the introduction of television into the House of Commons and the conducting of a series of high profile enquiries into controversial subjects such as the collapse of the Bank of Commerce and Credit International, the use of the Maxwell pension funds and the closure of coal mines, departmental select committees have become a prominent element of the work of the House.
Since 1979 the time taken to set up the departmental select committees after a general election has always left something to be desired: around 180 days from the return of the House to nomination of members in 1983 and around 160 in 1987--77 days in 1992.
As with all departmental select committees, Keith was elected to the chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee by the House of Commons, and his position is a matter for him and the House.
Nevertheless, after some delay while the Committee of Selection did its work, fourteen new departmental select committees were duly nominated in November 1979 and effectively began work at the start of 1980.
