James Daly MP has been appointed to Parliament’s Home Affairs Select Committee. The Home Affairs Committee is a cross-party committee of MPs responsible for scrutinising the work of the Home Office and its associated bodies. It examines government policy, spending and the law in areas including immigration, security, and policing.
Mr Daly will continue to serve as a member of the Justice Select Committee, a position he has held since his election. This means he will have a role scrutinising the whole of the criminal justice system within Parliament. James brings over 15 years of experience working within the criminal justice system to his new position, including nearly a decade working at Bury Magistrates Court.
James Daly MP said:
“It’s a fantastic privilege to join the Home Affairs Select Committee.
The work of this committee is crucial, ensuring the policies of the Home Office are in line with the needs of the country and continue to uphold the fundamental, and Bury born, Peelian Principles that underpin our Police Force.
Residents in my constituency are rightly concerned about crime and disorder in our area, and I will work in my national role to ensure we have better outcomes for the victims of crime at a national and local level.
I am looking forward to more cross-party working on this committee to ensure the rule of law is fair and proportionate and to ensuring the Home Office deliver their commitments on security and illegal immigration.”
Further to his membership of two select committees, Mr Daly will continue as Chair of four All-Party Parliamentary Groups for Youth Employment, Northern Culture, Tenanted Pubs and Nursery Schools, Nursery and Reception Classes.
