Canadian Senate Standing Committee on Rules, Procedures and the Rights of Parliament
The Senate Standing Committee on Rules, Procedures and the Rights of Parliament () is a committee of the Senate of Canada. As a standing committee, the rules of the Senate re-establish the committee at the opening of every new session of the Senate (otherwise the committee would permanently dissolve). The committee is presently charged with considering the possible repercussions and consequences of the motion of Hugh Segal to televise the proceedings of the Senate for public viewing. The current committee is in the 2nd session of the 40th parliament of Canada.
The committee's mandate is: (1) on its own initiative to propose, from time to time, amendments to the rules for consideration by the Senate; (2) upon reference from the Senate, to examine and, if required, report on any question of privilege; and (3) to consider the orders and customs of the Senate and privileges of Parliament.
