My work as the BEIS Select Committee Chair.
I’m the chair of the House of Commons Business, Environment and Industrial Strategy Select Committee. The committee is responsible for scrutinising the government across business, energy and industrial strategy policy and its public bodies (such as the Committee on Climate Change). It also undertakes inquiries and suggests policies to the government.
The BEIS committee supports workers and UK businesses by investigating a range of issues from workers rights, workplace safety and corporate governance to environmental policy, government assistance programmes and product safety.
My priority as chair is that we ensure proper and effective support for businesses and workers during the pandemic, take proper action to recovery and grow the economy in a more equal and sustainable way, and ensure proper leadership at home and abroad on tackling climate change.
