About this committee
The Scrutiny of Bills Committee was established in 1981. Its functions, which are set out in Standing Order 24, are to assess legislative proposals against a set of accountability standards that focus on the effect of proposed legislation on individual rights, liberties and obligations, the rule of law and on parliamentary propriety.
The committee publishes two documents during sitting weeks, the Alert Digest and the Report which are available online.
