David Ruffley

Treasury Select Committee

David Ruffley MP is a senior member of the influential Treasury Committee, which 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 Services Authority.

He was also recently appointed to the Joint Committee on the Draft Financial Services Bill, a committee of both Houses appointed to conduct pre-legislative scrutiny of this revolutionary overhaul of our country's financial regulatory system.

"In the 2001 Parliament it was two Tories who used a Select Committee to biff inscrutable authority. Michael Fallon and David Ruffley (Sevenoaks and Bury St Edmunds, respectively) were the only stout hearts who managed to grab Gordon Brown's collar and ask the then almighty Chancellor what the blithering heck he was doing with the economy. How prescient their attacks now look" - Quentin Letts, Daily Mail, 2008.
