DAME Jackie Doyle-Price MP has been elected Chair of the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (PACAC).

The result of today’s election was announced in the Chamber this afternoon following a ballot of the whole House. 

Also on the ballot paper was Tom Randall.

Chair of PACAC, Dame Jackie Doyle Price MP, said: 

“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead the Committee in its work examining constitutional issues and the quality and standards of public administration.

“Respect for our institutions of Government requires that we subject them to robust challenge. I look forward to chairing the Committee’s ongoing inquiries into the important constitutional issues of the day, including devolution capability in Whitehall, membership of the House of Lords, and Civil Service Leadership and Reform. 

“I intend to use the time left in this Parliament to ensure that the necessary questions are asked to uphold good governance and appropriate cultural behaviour within the institutions of government.”
