The Labour Party’s Commission on the UK’s Future, chaired by Gordon Brown, has published recommendations for sweeping constitutional change, including major reforms to the devolution framework and the House of Lords. What does the Commission’s report propose? What does it leave out? Could its proposals be practically implemented? If so, how might this be done? A panel of experts will discuss these questions.


Professor Aileen McHarg is Professor of Public Law and Human Rights at Durham University.

Akash Paun is a Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government.

Professor Meg Russell is Director of the Constitution Unit.
