The Liaison Committee is a committee of the British House of Commons, the lower house of the United Kingdom Parliament. The committee consists of the Chairmen of the 32 Commons Select Committees and the chairman of the Joint Committee on Human Rights.

The role of the committee is to consider general matters relating to the work of select committees. It advises the House of Commons Commission on select committees as well as choosing select committee reports for debate in the chamber.

Since 2002, the Prime Minister has appeared annually before the Liaison Committee in order to give evidence on matters of public policy. David Cameron went before the liaison committee for the first time after the United Kingdom general election, 2010 on 18 November 2010.[1]
