Abstract

In the long age of abortive Lords reforms, Theresa May has installed a new chapter by backing off from her predecessor’s plans to strip the upper House of its power to vote down statutory instruments – the main form of delegated legislation vital to the UK government’s extensive executive powers. Richard Reid argues that the decision reflects upcoming Brexit legislation, but continues a tradition now of leaving the Lords functions and status in limbo.
