Published on: 25 March 2008

The White Paper, 'The Governance of Britain: Constitutional Renewal' takes the route map first laid out in the Governance of Britain Green Paper, develops it further by taking into account the views expressed in consultations, and sets out the government's position.

The Draft Constitutional Renewal Bill, as part of the White Paper, contains a series of proposed reforms that will renew Britain's constitutional arrangements. The reforms will limit the government's power on certain matters and hand more power to Parliament.
