Public Bill Committees in United Kingdom

Public Bill Committees Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

A Public Bill Committee (PBC) is a committee set up by the House of Commons to examine the details of a particular Bill. All Bills, other than Money Bills, are automatically sent to a Public Bill Committee following their second reading unless they are committed to a committee of the Whole House. The composition of the committees must match the size of the parties in the House.

A Public Bill Committee can take evidence as part of its scrutiny of the Bill.
