Our first post discusses the Recall for MPs Bill which is due to receive its second reading in the House of Lords on 17 December. The post explores the arguments around the Bill including the recommendations that have been made for extending the power of recall to other elected representatives, such as local councillors and Police and Crime Commissioners.
