Justice and Security Bill: some recommended reading

As the distinction in much of the news media between straight reporting and comment becomes increasingly less clear, and in-depth analysis is replaced by instant comment, reliable, neutral and well-informed analysis of big policy issues becomes more difficult to lay one’s hands on. That is even more true when it comes to Parliamentary business.

Unbeknown to many outside the Parliamentary Estate (or at least to me until fairly recently!) are the documents produced by the Commons and Lords libraries. All the documents produced are available to browse here.

When the controversial Justice and Security Bill had its second reading in the House of Lords recently, the Lords Library prepared an excellent note setting out the intentions of the Bill and the comments on it from outside organisations.

You can download the note as a pdf here.
