Rushanara rejoined the Treasury Select Committee in October 2017, after previously serving on it from November 2014 to March 2015. The Treasury Committee is appointed by the House of Commons to examine the expenditure, administration and policy of HM Treasury, HM Revenue & Customs, and associated public bodies, including the Bank of England and the Financial Conduct Authority. This cross-party Committee is made up of eleven Members of Parliament and meets around twice a week, often taking evidence from key people such as the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Governor of the Bank of England.
The Committee currently has several on-going inquiries into the UK's Economic Relationship with the EU, Household Finances, the Bank of England Inflation Reports and more.
