Committees are central to the operations of the National Council for three reasons. Firstly, they allow for the detailed examination of complex matters which is more easily done in small groups than an entire house. Secondly, they offer an opportunity for Members to hear from citizens and experts on topics of national concern and to have these representations placed on the public record. Thirdly, they provide a means for members to probe into the details of policies and programs, thereby further developing an expertise in specific areas.
Therefore, members devote a great deal of time and energy to committees. Their main functions are:
Find out who's the MP(s) for a constituency.
Read press releases, watch live & archived video..
Keep up to date with what's happening at the National Council.
