Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 - Constitution Committee launches call for evidence
25 July 2019
The Constitution Committee has launched a call for evidence for its new inquiry into the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 and invites individuals and organisations to submit evidence.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to 5pm on Thursday 24 October 2019
The Committee has launched the inquiry to explore the workings and implications of the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 ahead of the statutory review required in 2020.
The Act was part of the Coalition Government’s constitutional reform agenda and had the overarching aim to move power from the Executive to Parliament, thereby removing the Prime Minister’s ability to call an election purely for political gain. This inquiry will examine how effective the Act has been.
