Legislative Grand Committee

The Legislative Grand Committees are committees of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, established in 2015. There are three Legislative Grand Committees: Legislative Grand Committee for England, made up of all 533 English MPs Legislative Grand Committee for England and Wales, made up of all 573 MPs elected from constituencies in England and in Wales Legislative Grand Committee for England and Northern Ireland, made up of all 591 MPs elected from constituencies in England and Northern Ireland. A grand committee for Scotland, the Scottish Grand Committee, was established in 1907 to consider issues and legislation exclusive to Scotland. Grand committees for Wales and Northern Ireland were subsequently established to consider issues relating to those nations. No grand committee was established for England; this committee had 13 members. Regional select committees and grand committees existed for the English Regions between 2008 and 2010. Standing orders to establish a Legislative Grand Committee were approved by the House of Commons in October 2015 as part of efforts to address the so-called West Lothian Question, an anomaly whereby MPs representing seats in Scotland and Northern Ireland can vote on issues and legislation which only affect people in England.

The idea of establishing a grand committee for England was suggested by Conservative MP Sir Malcolm Rifkind in 2007 as part of his "East Lothian Answer" to the West Lothian Question. This was echoed by the report of the McKay Commission established by the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government, published in 2013; the Legislative Grand Committees were established in 2015 to facilitate the Conservative Government's policy of ensuring that legislation that only applies in England can only be enacted with the consent of MPs representing constituencies in England. This system has been dubbed "English votes for English laws"; the Speaker judges which parts of a bill relate to England and Wales. When a bill is deemed to apply to "England-only in its entirety", an England-only committee stage will consider the bill. Membership of this committee will reflect the number of MPs. Where sections of legislation relate only to England, to England and Wales or to England and Northern Ireland, agreement of a legislative grand committee all of English MPs, or as the case may be, all English and Welsh or English and Northern Irish MPs, is required.

All MPs would be able to vote on the bill's Third Reading, but a double majority of all MPs and English MPs would be required for the bill to be passed. The first bill, scrutinised by the Committees was the Housing and Planning Act 2016, which had its second reading on 2 November 2015. Between October 2015 and December 2016, the committees met 15 times. Seven times in the England only configuration, seven times in the England and Wales configuration and once in the England and Northern Ireland configuration; the total time accumulated by sittings of the committees during that period was one hour and twenty three minutes.
