ABSTRACT
The article reports on the return of British Members of Parliament (MP) and peers to Westminster to discuss unfinished parliamentary business in 2008. Among the legislation to be discussed by British legislators is the proposed Infrastructure Planning Commission. Ministers will be eager to see whether government proposals can see off a wrangle over an amendment that effectively removes the right to take legal action over nuisances prompted by major developments.
