The Dunlop Review and the UK Government’s union capability


In July 2019, the UK Government asked Lord Dunlop “to undertake a short, focused independent review to ensure that, within the context of the existing devolution settlements, we are working in the most effective way possible to realise fully all the benefits of being a United Kingdom”. Lord Dunlop’s Review of UK Government Union Capability was completed in late 2019, but despite commitments to publish earlier, was not published until March 2021.


On Thursday 20 May, a joint committee one-off evidence session will scrutinise the Dunlop review and relevant actions taken by the UK Government. The four committees participating are the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee, Northern Ireland Affairs Committee, Scottish Affairs Committee and Welsh Affairs Committee.
