Standing committees do not have a corresponding portfolio (government department) over which they perform oversight. They deal mainly with cross-cutting matters, and the following committees fit into this category, inter alia:

  • The Standing Committee on Public Accounts
  • The Standing Committee on Private Members’ Legislative Proposals and Petitions
  • The Standing Committee on the Quality of Life and Status of Women, Children, Youth and Disabled Persons
