The Government’s Constitution, Democracy and Rights Commission


At the last election, the Government committed, in its first year, to setting up a “Constitution, Democracy & Rights Commission” to look at “the broader aspects of our constitution” and “come up with proposals to restore trust in our institutions and in how our democracy operates”. The Government has outlined a range of areas the Commission would focus on, but has not announced the form or timing of the Commission beyond the commitments made in the Conservative Manifesto and Queen’s speech.
