This first report analyses the obstacles to delivering a major programme of constitutional reform, and identifies possible solutions. In Whitehall the reform programme will need central strategic leadership from a senior cabinet Minister, supported by a body of officials who have an overview of the whole programme. In Westminster three changes to parliamentary procedure could ease the passage of constitutional bills: partial referral of bills to standing committee, advance timetabling of all bills, and selective use of carry over. Appendix A contains a detailed history of the passage of all constitutional bills since 1900. Appendix B analyses the lessons to be learnt from the three major attempts to reform parliamentary procedure since 1945.
