Control over Parliamentary Committees:

  2. He appoints Chairmen of all Committees of the House.
  3. He issues directions to the Chairmen in all matters relating to their working.
  4. 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.
