comment What is a “Select Committee” in the context of an 1833 English report?
Putting child labour & 1833 together it seems you are referring to British MP M.T Sadler's select committee. In this case I would go for whatever translation(s) have been used (or are used) in history books. Comité parlementaire is often used for it, it is used also in the translation of Engel's La situation de la classe laborieuse en Angleterre. But it is usually referred to as le comité Sadler" just as it is known in English as "Sadler’s Committee". In any case do not use *Commission d'Enquête Parlementaire which would be an anachronism and out of place in Britain.

comment “Your order has shipped”
To corroborate your analysis. One of the examples for transitive/intransitive use of ship in Macmillan's dictionary is: Version 4.0 should ship in a week or two. And a page on Macmillan's website. Your very good answer was written prior to this, so of course you couldn't find it in your research. A very late upvote from me, but I've just hit on this question/answer.
