On Tuesday, I attended the inaugural meeting of an all-party group. This one was well attended! It is a new group on the constitution. I was elected as chair. The purpose of the group is to provide information on constitutional issues on a non-partisan basis. We plan to examine issues from a historical and comparative perspective. Despite the growth in the number of all-party groups, I felt this one was justified given that the constitution is very much on the political agenda. Given the legislation planned in this and future sessions, there is a need to provide factual information and analysis on matters such as electoral systems, referendums, dissolutions and second chambers, as well as inter-cameral relations. I don’t think we are going to be short of topics. I suspect our meetings will attract a good attendance.
