The House of Lords Constitution Committee Inquiry into the Union and Devolution

The House of Lords Constitution Committee has announced an inquiry into the Union and Devolution. Written evidence is invited as follows:

“The Constitution Committee has previously expressed concern that the process of devolution has failed to take into account the needs of the UK as a whole. This new inquiry focuses on the Union. It will consider what binds the constituent parts of the UK together, and how the Union could be strengthened and reinforced. The inquiry explore two key themes. First, the principles that should underlie the existence and governance of the Union and the exercise of power, both centrally and by the devolved nations. Secondly, practical steps that could stabilise and strengthen the Union in line with those underlying principles.”
