The Prime Minister has, from the outset of her premiership, proclaimed her desire to tackle Britain’s ‘burning injustices’. Whilst there has been some early progress, negotiating Brexit has inevitably limited the radicalism of her domestic reform agenda. The outcome of the 2017 General Election, in which the Conservative Party lost its ruling majority, means that backbench parliamentarians are in a uniquely powerful position to influence the current Government. This collection of essays, authored by prominent backbenchers from all the UK’s main national political parties, seeks to highlight some of Britain’s ‘burning injustices’, and provide solutions to help address them.
