Press Release: Devolution and Future of the Union: the Challenge for the new Parliament

Publication date:

A new report by the Constitution Unit

On the eve of the election the Constitution Unit publishes today a new report on Devolution and the Future of the Union. Its analysis will survive well into the new Parliament, whoever forms the next government. The report explores future challenges to the Union, with all parties committed to further devolution, a resurgent SNP, and the Conservative promise of English votes for English laws. These issues will all feature in the post-election negotiations between the parties, with growing tensions between England and Scotland, and a risk that hasty deals could end up undermining the Union.

Press Release: Senior academic figures specify standards for a post-election constitutional convention

Publication date:

Today a group of senior academics publish a statement setting out the minimum standards for a post-election constitutional convention. Several of the political parties are now committed to establishing such a body, to discuss the constitutional options for the UK following the Scottish referendum. The Labour Party manifesto promises 'a people-led Constitutional Convention’, the Liberal Democrat manifesto 'a UK Constitutional Convention’ and the Greens' manifesto 'a Constitutional Convention led by citizens’. The other parties either support or are prepared to contemplate establishment of such a body.
