A Committee body of persons delegated to consider, investigate, take action on, or report on some matter e.g. an advisory committee. It can also be a small group of people chosen to represent a larger organization and either make decisions or collect information for it or a group of people who have been assembled, especially for a specific purpose. For an example of this see the Committee for the Accounts of the Navy.
