New Report Demands Ammendments April 25, 2006

Posted by bill111 in Politics.

The third report from the Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) on the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill (LRRB) was published today and included calls for significant ammendments to be made to the bill.

The report includes concerns over the Governments supposed  'back-down' last week and has echoed our own concerns about the Governments promised ammendments.

In particular, the report calls for an adequate Parliamentary veto outside of committee, limitations on which legislation can be altered using LRRB and limits on the penalties for implementations of Law Comission recommendations.

We welcome and support the reports conclusions which we hope the Government will take into account whilst they re-think the bill.

The full report is available on the PASC website

Surely the message from the voting public should be “get rid of this bill in it’s entirety” , past experience with politicians and especially this Government under Tony Blair is that they are not to be trusted at all,and they cannot be allowed to alter the basic priciples of our democracy in any shape or form.

It would be sad to lose 790 years of freedom in a few minutes, but if we do, it will be our fault for not stopping this totalitarian license.

The amendments are published today, according to a headline story on BBC Radio this morning. It’s important to read them very carefully – it would be too easy to see an important story swamped by others (the Clarke affair and the local election results, for instance)
