Committees of the European Parliament

Parliament's standing committees, of which there are twenty, do the detailed preparatory work on legislative texts for Parliament's plenary sessions. Each committee appoints a chairman, three vice-chairmen and has a secretariat. The committees draw up and adopt reports on legislative proposals and own-initiative reports. They also prepare opinions for other standing committees. In addition to these standing committees, Parliament can set up temporary committees and committees of inquiry.

I am a full member of the Fisheries Committee and the Economic & Monetary Affairs Committee, as well as a substitute member on Internal Market & Consumer Protection Committee.

Full details of the remit, membership and work programme of each committee can be found on the European Parliament website at;
