Providing an authoritative and comprehensive account of these plans and the thinking and debates that surround them, this volume covers constitutional changes now or shortly being implemented by the government as well as longer-term measures and objectives under consideration.The book is edited by two of the UK's leading constitutional commentators, with a team of contributors recognised as experts on their individual subjects. It represents a key contribution to the debate on Labour's constitutional agenda, and will be essential reading for anybody concerned with the wider political and legal implications of this programme.show more
