Mr Blair’s legacy: The Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill and the emasculation of Parliament

As Tony Blair reaches the end of his premiership, it has become clear that his constitutional reforms are likely to be one of the more substantial legacies of his time in office. It may be that his last contribution to this constitutional legacy is a Bill that has been described by the House of Commons Regulatory Reform Select Committee as “the most constitutionally significant Bill that has been brought before Parliament for some time” – the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill.
