A quick briefing note on the research evidence for the new amendments being debated at Report stage in the Lords on 17th March 2020. The amendments include an attempt to reintroduce fault and separation periods. I’ve looked at each one and, leaving aside the amendment on Henry VIII powers by Lord Keen, none are consistent with the research evidence from studies from the 1970s, 80s and 90s and the Finding Fault study. Let’s hope that the Bill continues unamended in its present form, as indeed it did in the Commons last year.
Apologies that the briefing is not up to the same production standards as the last one. Time was against us!
