The West Midlands Regional Select Committee was one of nine regional select committee of the House of Commons in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The establishment of the committee was agreed by the House of Commons on 12 November 2008,[1] following the appointment of 'regional ministers' by Gordon Brown on his appointment as Prime Minister in June 2007.[2] The committee came into existence on 1 January 2009 and ceased to exist upon the dissolution of Parliament on 12 April 2010.[3][4]

The purpose of the Committee was "to examine regional strategies and the work of regional bodies" in the West Midlands.
