Resource description

With outrage over the parliamentary expenses scandal and public respect for MPs lower than ever, any discussion of MPs working less hours can be spun as yet another example of ‘work-shy’ MPs. But this is not the case argue Sarah Childs and Rosa Malley, who here examine the importance of reforming how MPs’ time is balanced between constituency and Parliamentary business, how time in parliament might be reformed, and how this may make the House a more diverse place.
