Abstract

Examines the case for reform of public sector ombudsmen in England, arguing that the Scottish and Welsh model of an integrated ombudsman service should be adopted but that the adoption of a such a system in England would be complicated by the nature of the devolution settlement and, in particular, England's curious place within in.

Keywords: devolution, ombudsmen, public sector ombudsmen, constitutional law, United Kingdom, England, Scotland, administrative law
