How the Parliamentary Committees are controlled by the Speaker of the Lok Sabha?
Control over Parliamentary Committees:
- The speaker is the Ex-officio Chairman of some of the Committees of the House, such as the Business Advisory Committee and the Rules Committee.
- He appoints Chairmen of all Committees of the House.
- He issues directions to the Chairmen in all matters relating to their working.
- If Government claims that a particular document is secret, but the Committees insist on its production before them, the matter is referred to the Speaker for advice and his instructions are obeyed.
Concept: Speaker – Election and Functions
