Abstract

The ease with which an early election has been called has raised questions about the purpose of the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act. Andrew Blick outlines the key legal aspects that must be reviewed – including the regular length of a parliament – so that the public will still get to elect their MPs relatively frequently, but not on a timetable that suits the politicians of the day.
