Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes, posters and contributions from speakers.


Workshops are organised by the policy departments and administered in accordance with the Financial Regulation. They are not necessarily held in public but may be held during a Committee meeting.

Workshops enable Members to put questions to and exchange views with experts on subjects associated with parliamentary business or subjects of current interest.
