Functions of the Committee

The Business Committee is established by Sessional Order 3 of the 57th Parliament.  

The role of the Business Committee is to discuss how the House will deal with business.  Any decisions made by the Business Committee in accordance with that role, are not binding on the House and a Business Program motion is required. The Business Program motion may be moved at the time allocated for it in the Sessional Orders.  It may provide for the allocation of time for any business.
