Select committees exist in the British Parliament, as well as in other parliaments based on the Westminster model, such as those in Australia, Canada, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. It is a special subcommittee of a legislature or assembly governed under a committee system, like Robert's Rules of Order.
