Freshwater has guided a variety of organisations through select committee inquiries, including the Association of Train Operating Companies, Bristol Port Company and the Civil Aviation Authority, and very recently assisted the Port of London Authority ahead of an appearance in front of a Greater London Authority committee.
Freshwater’s expert advisers work with you from the outset of an inquiry to set objectives and asses the key issues. We will liaise with the clerk of the committee and its staff on your behalf to provide insights into their aims and the likely scope of their questions. We work with a former parliamentary clerk and bill manager who has coached ministers and senior members of the civil service for these hearings. This experience is drawn upon to develop material and mock sessions that ensure you will be prepared.
Thorough feedback and support is given throughout the process, to ensure you have a full understanding of what to expect from the session and help prepare you for any line of questioning that may be thrown at you.
