Guardian – Reform bill climbdown fails to satisfy critics: Critics of a new law giving ministers greater powers have renewed their attack despite a major climbdown, warning that the government got its proposals “badly wrong”. The Cabinet Office was forced to drastically prune the legislation – dubbed the “parliamentary scrutiny (abolition) bill” – last month, after whips warned that the Lords would throw it out. Opponents said it would allow ministers to change laws almost at will, even introducing new criminal offences or amending the constitution.

Heads-up:The Legislative and Regulatory Reform Bill (provisionally) receives its Second Reading in the House of Lords on June 13. Background here and here if you need it.
