Group of MPs inclined, mostly, to carry vote for pledge (6,9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

select committee

Here is my best explanation:

'group of mps' is the definition.

(UK political term)

'inclined mostly to carry vote for pledge' is the subsidiary indication.

'inclined mostly' becomes 'stee' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

'to carry' indicates putting letters inside.

'vote for' becomes 'elect' (I've seen this before).

'pledge' becomes 'commit'.

'elect'+'commit'='electcommit'

'stee' enclosing 'electcommit' is 'selectcommittee'.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for select committee that I've seen before include "Group of MPs" and "parliamentary group".)
