150th ANNIVERSARY OF THE PUBLICATION OF WALTER BAGEHOT'S THE ENGLISH CONSTITUTION (No. 2)

That this House celebrates the 150th anniversary in 2017 of the publication of the English Constitution, written by Walter Bagehot; recalls that he cleverly distinguished the effective parts of a constitution from the decorative parts; recognises that this still has a powerful resonance in the modern world; and believes that the nations of Europe, including Britain, should seek to ensure that the effectiveness of their national parliaments is restored and secured for the future and that parliaments do not become mere constitutional decoration in the face of the continuing encroachment of the EU on parliamentary democracy.
