A Joint Select Committee is a committee formed with members chosen from parliament representatives, government officials and particular professionals when necessary. These committees are formed to consider and report on legislative, financial and investigatory issues and they report to Parliament. The committee is formed to handle and advise on a particular issue, example, FATCA, and then report, after this the committee is then dissolved. This committee only has as much power as given and directed by Parliament.
