What are Sectoral committees?

These are departmentally related committees, whose composition is determined at the start of each new session.

Each departmentally related committee consists of not less than 15 and not more than 30 members selected by the Business Committee from a list provided by the Party Whips.

The Business Committee in making the selection takes into consideration the political parties or organisations represented in the House, gender, qualifications and experience of the members in the various portfolios.
