Michael Gove Makes A Comeback On New Brexit Committee

Among the Tory team are Alistair Burt, Maria Caulfield, Michael Gove, Andrea Jenkyns, Jeremy Lefroy, Peter Lilley, Karl McKartney, Craig Mackinley, Dominic Raab and John Whittingdale. 

Tory MPs Anna Soubry and Peter Bone were unsuccessful in their bids to sit on the committee.

Labour’s members include Stephen Timms, Emma Reynolds, Pat McFadden, and Seema Malhotra. 

The committee will be almost double the size of almost every other Commons select committee, a decision some MPs claim is deliberate sabotage, as they say it will be less effective.

The SNP is to elect two members to the committee, while the Lib Dems, the Democratic Unionist Party, the SDLP, and Plaid Cymru will each chose one.
