Ecclesiastical Committee

The Ecclesiastical Committee is made up of 15 MPs and 15 members of the House of Lords that are nominated by the Speaker and Lord Speaker respectively. The Committee's role is to consider the merits of any draft Measures issued by the Church of England's General Synod and advise on whether or not they should be approved by Parliament.
