Committees play a central part in the work of the Parliament – taking evidence from witnesses, scrutinising legislation and conducting inquiries. Most committees meet weekly or fortnightly, usually on Tuesdays or on Wednesday mornings, in one of the Scottish Parliament's committee rooms – or in locations around Scotland. Most meetings are in public – follow this link for information about how to attend a committee meeting.

For information about individual committees – their membership, current and future work, reports and other papers – choose the appropriate committee from one of the lists below.

For information on committees and how they operate, see The Work of Committees in the Scottish Parliament.

Protocol Between Committee Clerks and Scottish Government officials
This protocol is designed to set the framework for a shared understanding of how the parliamentary committees and the Government should work together. Its primary function is to ensure an open flow of information between the Parliament and the Government. It is aimed at the Parliament's Clerking Services and the appropriate staff in the Government. The protocol is also available on the Scottish Government's website.
