  Localism Bill

*Memorandum submitted by Dr Michael Macpherson (L 40) 


-- Pre-amble

-- Opinion: Over-cautious steps towards democracy by the people: Better 
than no steps at all?

-- Further reading

 From the memorandum: "British people have in repeated surveys shown 
that they embrace the principles of a participative democracy which goes 
beyond consultation, panel or citizen-jury systems. These principles 
cover the citizen's right to initiate a binding referendum on any public 
issue and to be given the choice to decide directly about vital 
international treaties, in plebiscite."
