Getting to work

Looking at this week's Select Committee timetable [PDF], I'm pleased to see that the Local Government and Environment Select Committee is meeting for the full three and a half hours on Thursday to work through their backlog. It's all estimates and petitions, but this is as much a part of their job as scrutinising legislation, and its good to see that they're devoting adequete time to it.

Hopefully they'll keep this up, and we won't see any more delays in bills they are scrutinising...
