21. We welcome the evidence of significant thought
and effort being put into preparations for the full range of parliamentary
election outcomes by the Government, and the Cabinet Secretary
in particular. As Professor Hazell told us, the work undertaken
by the Cabinet Office was "an excellent initiative and ...
the draft chapter is a very strong start".
22. We look forward to seeing the fruits of the informal
consultation set in motion by the Cabinet Office on its draft
chapter on elections and government formation in due course and
prior to an election being called.
