Committee Members

The Justice and Security Act 2013 provides for the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament to have a membership of nine, drawn both from members of the House of Commons and members of the House of Lords, with none permitted to be a Minister of the Crown.  Members are appointed by the Houses of Parliament, having first secured the nomination of the Prime Minister (in consultation with the Leader of the Opposition).

Please note that, following the 2015 General Election, Parliament has yet to appoint Members to the ISC.  It is expected that this will occur in a similar time frame to, or shortly after, appointments have been made to Departmental Select Committees in the House of Commons.  This page will be updated once further details are available.
