Madeline Moon MP states (on her website - July 2019):
"I joined the House of Commons Defence Select Committee in 2009. The Committee appointed by the House of Commons to examine the expenditure, administration, and policy of the Ministry of Defence and its associated public bodies. The Committee usually meets once, but often twice a week when the House of Commons is sitting. This involves conducting enquiries into a wide range of issues. Witnesses, often senior members of the military, give evidence to the Committee and at the end of each inquiry, a report is published. You can find out more about the Committee and our current inquiries here.
"I was elected to the United Kingdom Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in 2010. Established in 1955, the assembly brings together members of parliaments from all NATO member countries and some associate parliaments. The Parliamentary Assembly provides a forum for discussion on a wide variety of security, political and economic matters. More details about the UK delegation is available here."
