Report published

The SLSC conducted a short inquiry into the implications of Lord Strathclyde's review and has published its report. The Committee rejects all of the three options for a change to the way the House of Lords scrutinises secondary legislation. The Committee recommends that the Lords should retain its power to reject secondary legislation, albeit only in exceptional circumstances.
