Investigation in relation to Government

To create legislation and check government, each House can conduct investigations in relation to government. Such investigations are conducted by the various committees set up in each House. Standing committees decide the matters within their jurisdiction that they will investigate for a given Diet session and receive the approval of the presiding officer of the House before commencing their investigations. Special committees investigate matters that are referred to them.
