Environmental Audit Committee

Infrastructure work.jpgNeil served as a member of the Environmental Audit Committee between 2010 and 2015.

The remit of the Environmental Audit Committee is to consider the extent to which the policies and programmes of government departments and non-departmental public bodies contribute to environmental protection and sustainable development, and to audit their performance against sustainable development and environmental protection targets.

Unlike most select committees, the Committee’s remit cuts across government rather than focuses on the work of a particular department.
