MPs took evidence from Home Affairs Minister James Brokenshire on 28 November 2012 on EU justice and home affairs policies.
The committee debated how to improve parliamentary scrutiny of legislation emanating from the EU.
Mr Brokenshire said he was keen for more legislation to be debated on the floor of the House - meaning in the main chamber of the House of Commons rather than merely in committees.
Committee chair Bill Cash warned that any changes would need to ensure there was still "full engagement with people with the right expertise".
Home Secretary Theresa May told the House of Commons in October that ministers planned to repatriate a number of EU home affairs powers in 2014, under the terms of the Lisbon Treaty.
The government could subsequently opt back in to some of the measures, Mrs May said, but discussions were ongoing as to what these measures would be.
The opt-out, agreed by the last government, means the government either has to pull out of all 130 EU crime and policing measures agreed before that treaty came in to force in 2009, or none of them.
