Mike Weatherley, the Conservative MP for Hove and Portslade, has joined the powerful House of Commons Justice Select Committee. The Justice Committee was appointed by the House of Commons to examine the expenditure, administration and policy of the Ministry of Justice and associated public bodies.

Mike has worked closely with the Ministry of Justice since his election to Parliament, particularly in his role in securing legislation for squatting to be criminalised in residential premises and his work with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Retail Crime.

Mike said:

“I am honoured to serve on the Justice Select Committee. The oversight carried out by committees such as this is just one of the important roles that MPs undertake in order to instil public confidence in our national institutions. I look forward to working with this group of cross-party colleagues as it carries out its scrutiny role.”
