Labour appoints select members
The Education Select Committee will be chaired by Mrs Hodge while Mr Foster, the former chief whip for Labour, will head the employment committee.
The sub-groups have yet to decide whether further education and lifelong learning are the preserve of education or employment.
Apart from Mrs Hodge, the only Labour survivor from the previous Conservative-dominated select committee is Gerry Steinberg, who resigned from the back-bench education committee in protest at Harriet Harman sending her son to a grant-maintained grammar.
The other Labour members are: Candy Atherton; Charlotte Atkins; Joe Benton; Yvette Cooper; Judy Mallaber; Valerie Davey; John Healey and Caroline Flint.
The Tories are: Eleanor Laing, adviser to former education secretary John MacGregor; Theresa May; Graham Brady and Nick St Aubyn. Don Foster, the Liberal Democrat education spokesman, stays on the committee. The Plaid Cymru MP is Cynog Dafis.
