Elsewhere on the ‘Net: UCL Constitution Unit Newsletter Monitor 47

January 27, 2011 Leave a comment

The Constitution Unit of University College, London, publishes a periodic short newsletter summarising major constitutional issues in the UK.  Their latest one is here.

This issue touches on:

  • Government defeats in the Lords;
  • The reckless (and unnecessary) speed of the government’s constitutional reform program;
  • The progress of the Fixed Term Parliaments Bill and the PVS&C Bill;
  • Difficulties with the European Union Bill;
  • The new Cabinet Manual;
  • Meg Russell’s proposed moratorium on Lords appointments;
  • The run-up to the Welsh Devolution referendum;
  • The Oldham East & Saddleworth by-election;
  • Parliamentary Privilege;
  • Constitutional issues in other devolved parts of the UK.

Feel free to read at your leisure, it’s fascinating!
