Next Wednesday, the Deputy Prime Minister is giving evidence to the Constitution Committee in the Lords on the government’s constitutional reform agenda. It’s the one Wednesday of the year that I cannot be in Westminster. I have to be in Hull for a degree ceremony. In over thirty years, I have never missed a degree ceremony, so I’m afraid the Deputy PM will have to miss my probing questions.
I know some colleagues on the committee will be pursuing the questions I would have asked. It is likely to be televised, so should be well worth watching.
