Lords Constitution Committee report on reform process

The House of Lords Constitution Committee has published a report on the process of constitutional change in the UK today; read it here.

The report concludes: “67.  We believe that the best way to proceed at the present time is to seek to strengthen the role that both Houses of Parliament and the existing parliamentary committees can play in relation to the process of constitutional change. This can best be done by ensuring that the government abide by what is currently accepted as best practice. We do not, however, accept that the government should continue to pick and choose which processes to apply to which proposals. We therefore recommend that a clear and consistent process be set down in a manner which retains flexibility whilst also holding the government to account for their decisions.”
