The Scottish Affairs Select Committee is a select committee of the House of Commons in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The remit of the Committee is to examine the expenditure, administration and policy of the Scotland Office (and prior to that, the Scottish Office), and relations with the Scottish Parliament. It also looks at the administration and expenditure of the Advocate General for Scotland[1].

Unlike the Scottish Grand Committee, MPs from constituencies outwith Scotland can, and do, sit on the Scottish Affairs Committee.
