For those of you who are interested, there was a debate on CCfA in early February on the content of the exclusions regulations (SI 3261) which, as you know, was "called in".

There's an interesting discussion, with particular contributions from Julia Goldsworthy, the Lib Dems' spokesperson for communities and local government.
