Legislative bodging: No way to run a chip shop!

Parliament Matters

01-12-2023 • 51 mins

This week we are joined by Tony Grew, a doyen of the parliamentary press gallery, to discuss the growing fashion for re-writing Bills mid-air as they pass through Parliament.


We debate a new report from the Lords Economic Affairs Committee about the democratic deficit surrounding the Bank of England and we look at the four new special inquiry committees Peers have chosen to set up for 2024.


And we dissect the Labour reshuffle. Two MPs who won by-elections this year have been appointed Shadow Ministers. Is the idea that MPs should serve time on the back benches before being elevated to the front bench now dead?
