Should the House of Commons take back control of the agenda?


The report co-authored by Daniel Gover, Lecturer in British Politics at Queen Mary was featured in a recent BBC article. Dr Gover argues that decision-making about the work of the Commons should be controlled by a majority of MPs, not by the government - and that recent events have shown that governments don't always command a majority. The report recommends a series of detailed changes, one of the key changes being that the Commons takes back control of its agenda by the simple means of allowing MPs vote to approve it, or change it.
