Lords inquiry into legislative process

The House of Lords Constitution Committee has issued a call for evidence in respect of a new Inquiry into the legislative process.

The Inquiry will look at how legislation is prepared by Government and scrutinised by Parliament. It will consider how outside organisations and the public are involved in the process and how their role can be developed, including the possible uses of new technology. The Committee will also consider the possible impact of the UK withdrawing from the EU on the legislative process.

It is a follow-up to the Committee's influential 2004 report, Parliament and the Legislative Process. Recommendations in that report which were subsequently introduced included a proposal that the Government should review all legislation five years after it is introduced and also a greater role for Parliament in pre-legislative scrutiny.

This stage of the Inquiry will consider the issue of preparing legislation for introduction in Parliament. Further stages of the Inquiry will consider:

  • The passage of legislation through Parliament;
  • The delegation of powers; and,
  • Once legislation receives Royal Assent.

The closing date for submissions is Sunday 16th October.

More details are available here and the Call for Evidence is here.
