MP leaves Parliament’s science and tech committee

THIS WEEK IN 1994: Government defuses council tax time bomb

Have your say

AN MP has stepped down from her role on a parliamentary select committee because it took up too much time.

Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage has left the Science and Technology select committee – and says she will now have more time to focus on her own projects and her role on the Business, Innovation and Skills select committee.

She said: ‘I did both for a few months but it was filling my diary and I couldn’t take part in any debates in Parliament or in Westminster Hall. They recommend you don’t do two.’

Ms Dinenage was elected to the BIS committee in October.
