Constitutional processes following a general election - Justice Committee Contents

3  Conclusions

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.
