Reports of joint committees
41.8A report from a joint committee is made to each House.1 However, when the consideration of a bill by a joint committee has been concluded, the bill itself is reported to the House into which it has been introduced.2
Both Houses order a report from a joint committee to be printed, and it is published with both a House of Lords and a House of Commons paper number.
- 1. By its Chair to the House to which they belong, and to the other House by a Member of that House.
- 2. Where no report on the bill is made, the committee directs one of the Members of the other House to report ‘accordingly’ to that House: London Passenger Transport Bill, HL 90 (1930–31) p xlix; Consolidation Bills, HC 38 (1934–35) p xiv (Unemployment Insurance Bill [Lords]).
