Committees

Parliament has 16 permanent special committees and the Grand Committee, which focuses mainly on EU affairs. The special committees prepare Government bills, legislative initiatives, Government reports and other matters for handling in plenary session. Committees also issue statements when requested to do so.

As a rule each committee deals with matters that fall within the scope of a corresponding ministry. For instance, the Social Affairs and Health Committee deals with matters that come under the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, the Education and Culture Committee with matters that come under the Ministry of Education and the Administration Committee with matters that come under the Ministry of the Interior.

Education and Culture Committee

The Education and Culture Committee deals with matters relating to education, training, science, art, cultural activities, sports, youth work, copyright, and financial aid for students.
