Hybrid Instruments Committee


The Hybrid Instruments Committee is a select committee of the House of Lords in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The role of the committee is to look into all opposed hybrid instruments (i.e., a statutory instrument that, but for its enabling act, would have had to proceed through Parliament as a hybrid bill or private bill), and to advise the House as to whether it should appoint a select committee, similar to those appointed for opposed private bills, to scrutinise the instrument and the petition or petitions against it.


As of May 2021, the membership of the committee is as follows:

Member Party
The Lord Gardiner of Kimble (Chair) Non-affiliated
The Lord Addington Liberal Democrat
The Lord Dykes Crossbench
The Lord Grantchester Labour
The Lord Harrison Labour
The Baroness Jenkin of Kennington Conservative
The Lord Swinfen Conservative
