Government climb down over abolition of parliament bill

The government appears to be climbing down over some of the provisions of the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill. Well at least they have started to realise that they have a problem with this one. However, as David Heath points out giving the power of veto to a select committee which will itself be packed with government back benchers is not sufficient. There needs to be something with some real teeth to prevent any abuse of this legislation. Even better just drop the whole bill

I think they have several big problems - not just this, but immigration, ID cards, control orders - and then there are pensions, and the state of the national health service.

I too would welcome them dropping this bill.
