The Special Committee on the Quality of Life was a Spanish bureaucratic agency that advised King Fernando and Queen Isabella. In 1491, the Committee, chaired by Jaime Nosénada, reviewed a proposed naval expedition presented by the Italian mariner Cristóbal Colón. After weighing various factors, including the primitive nature of navigation, the danger to the health and well-being of the sailors, and the unknown imports that Spain might begin to receive, the Committee concluded that the voyage was not in Spain's national interest, and recommended that the proposal be declined.
