Committee meeting

Parliament's committees deal with EU legislative proposals by adopting reports, proposing amendments in plenary and appointing a negotiation team to conduct talks with Council. They also adopt non-legislative reports, organise hearings with experts and scrutinise other EU bodies and institutions. Parliament can set up sub-committees and special committees to deal with specific issues. Each committee elects a chair and up to four vice-chairs for a two and a half year mandate.
