Royal Consent as opposed to Royal Assent...Parliamentary Privilege and JSB in the Commons next week...

Work is getting in the way of blogging a bit at the moment - sorry - will be quiet for a bit.

This did catch my eye - that there is a constitutional convention whereby HMG can stop a private members bill which concerns curtailing the Royal Prerogative by advising HMQ not to consent to Parliament debating it.  The Queen truly "in Parliament".  Not something I had spotted before - lots more here and here

Plus HMG has got round to consulting on Parliamentary Privilege - have never understood how or why Court Orders should be flouted by MPs.  Should be interesting to see how that ends up....

The Commons get stuck into JSB next week:

The Public Bill Committee will meet on 29 and 31 January 2013. The Public Bill Committee will scrutinise the Bill line by line.
The Public Bill Committee is accepting written evidence.
The Public Bill Committee is expected to report to the House by 14 February 2013.
The Bill had its second reading debate on 18 December 2012. This Bill was presented to Parliament on 28 November 2012.
