United we stand? Coalition government in the UK

Ratings: (0)|Views: 62|Likes:
The UK is governed by a coalition with a dual leadership. The systems supporting this have had to adapt quickly. Many important changes to the process of government have already occurred. But more change is needed to ensure it can function effectively as it negotiates the difficult hurdles ahead.

Our report makes practical recommendations to enable the machinery of government to operate more effectively and manage the challenges ahead.

Foreword
Who knows whether or Britain coalition government is here to stay; or whether, likeLord Aberdeen’s three-year coalition in the 1850s, it will prove to be an exception in asystem which generally yields single-party government. The combined Conservative–Labour share o the vote was down in 2010 compared to 2005, leading some to predictmore o the same; but the combined Con–Lab share o Commons seats in act rosebetween the two elections, and it was the closer result between the two largest parties,in terms o seats, which created the conditions or coalition.However, whether coalitions be ew or many, it is essential that constitutional andadministrative arrangements are put in place or them to unction eectively. Thisreport by Akash Paun analyses the unctioning o the coalition in its irst our months,and makes a number o practical suggestions or improved arrangements to supportthe eective working o coalition government in Whitehall and Westminster. All o therecommendations low rom dialogue with those centrally engaged in the coalition, andthey could all be implemented rapidly and, in our judgement, without much controversy.Andrew AdonisThe Rt Hon. Lord Adonis, Director, Institute or Government
