Future Governance of the UK

The RSE has responded to the House of Lord’s Constitution Committee inquiry on the Future Governance of the UK.

Professor Iain McLean provides an overview of the RSE response to the House of Lords Constitution Committee inquiry on the Future Governance of the UK.

This response highlights that the current system of intergovernmental relations is not effective for the UK, as there are challenges and long-standing issues with it. Therefore, changes should be made introduced which promote cooperation, consultation, and dispute resolution. The RSE acknowledges the work of Lord Dunlop in his review into union capability and the exploration by the UK Government to change the system of intergovernmental relations.
