Petitions Committee and debates

The Petitions Committee is a select committee that considers e-petitions and paper petitions and decides what action, if any, to take. It can put forward petitions for debate.

The Petitions Committee consists of up to 11 backbenchers from Government and Opposition parties. Backbenchers are MPs who are not Ministers or shadow Ministers.
