We don’t need no legislation

It’s widely accepted that Brexit will consume the Government’s legislative agenda. However, that does not mean its domestic policies are on ice. Instead, the Government will get businesses to do the things it doesn’t have time to create laws for. Whitehall will require companies supplying the public sector to meet an increasing array of new conditions as part of their contracts, with each one supporting a different element of the Government’s domestic social policy agenda. As well as being a cost-effective option (for the Government, at least), this approach allows Whitehall to get companies to deliver social change – without ever having to bring a Bill to Parliament.
