Alumni and guests

Alumni and guests are invited to join the Cambridge Society of Hereford and Worcester for an evening lecture with Lord Lisvane KCB DL.

The lecture will be on 'Why is there so much bad legislation?' followed by a light buffet supper at the Zimmerman Building, Hereford Cathedral School.

Drawing on his experience in supporting the legislative process in the House of Commons, and on his experience as a consumer in the House of Lords, Lord Lisvane will look at the ways in which legislation is framed and scrutinised, and the balance of power between the Legislature and the Executive. Do we need better legislation in order better to serve the citizen and the Rule of Law? And if so, how should we go about it? Or is it already too late?

As Clerk to the House of Commons 2011-14, Sir Robert Rogers was the principal constitutional adviser and Chief Executive of the House Service. He was knighted in 2012 and became a Cross-bench member of the House of Lords when he was created a Peer in 2014. In the Lords he is a member of the Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee, and of the Ecclesiastical Committee, and specialises in parliamentary, constitutional and legal issues.
