Referendums in the UK's Constitutional Experience: Written Submission of Navraj Singh Ghaleigh to the House of Lords Constitution Committee

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

In early 2010, the House of Lords Constitution Committee undertook an inquiry into the UK’s constitutional experience of referendums. This short note is the evidence submitted by Ghaleigh to the Committee, drawing on previous work including the published book chapter, ‘Sledgehammers and nuts? Regulating referendums in the UK’ in S Hug & K Gilland Lutz (eds), Financing Referendum Campaigns (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009). That chapter was also cited and relied upon by the Irish Joint Committee on the Constitution in its ‘Report on the Amendment of the Constitution and the Referendum’, published in April 2009. The Committee published its report ‘Referendums in the United Kingdom - Select Committee on the Constitution 12th Report 2009-10:HL Paper 99’ on 7 April 2010, referencing this submission in Chapters 2, 3, 4 and 5, and reproducing it at pages 139-141.
