I missed this from the end of February. To be honest, there's such a constant stream of new legislation pouring from this Government that it is hard to keep up; yet it will soon stop mattering very much whether or not we keep our eye on the legislative situation if the proposed Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill is anything to go by. From The Times,
"The boring title of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill hides an astonishing proposal. It gives ministers power to alter any law passed by Parliament. The only limitations are that new crimes cannot be created if the penalty is greater than two years in prison and that it cannot increase taxation. But any other law can be changed, no matter how important. All ministers will have to do is propose an order, wait a few weeks and, voilà, the law is changed. "
That's it then. See you in prison, fellow HEors.
