Yvette Cooper has chaired the Home Affairs Select Committee (HASC) since 19 October 2016.
HASC was chaired by Keith Vaz until he resigned in October 2016 after being exposed by a sting operation involving male prostitutes and cocaine.
HASC is conducting four inquiries:
- Home Office preparedness for Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
- The Macpherson Report: twenty-one years on
- Channel crossings, migration and asylum-seeking routes through the EU
- Police conduct and complaints
Recent inquiries have included:
- Brexit-related preparations
- Domestic abuse
- Hate crime and its violent consequences
- Immigration detention
- Modern slavery
- Policing for the future
- Windrush children

On 25 April 2017 the Home Affairs Select Committee stated:
- We welcome the fact that YouTube, Facebook  and Twitter all have clear community standards that go beyond the requirements of the law. We strongly welcome the commitment that all three social media companies have to removing hate speech or graphically violent content, and their acceptance of their social responsibility towards their users and towards wider communities."
"Antisemitism in the UK"
Rather than publishing the HASC's report entitled "Antisemitism in the UK" in the House of Commons, acting Chair Tim Loughton decided to appear on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show on Sunday 16 October 2016 and explain the report's main findings which were critical of the Labour Party. An article published by the Free Speech on Israel group on 20 August 2016 described the report as "ill-conceived, politically tendentious and risible".
