The present Parliament looks like being one of the shortest since the middle of the last century, with another General Election in the early autumn - only the second time since the Reform Bill of 1832 that the country will have voted more than once in the same year.
In tonight's Analysis, the last before the programme's summer break, Labour, Conservative and Liberal parliamentarians are invited to say what sort of campaign they hope their parties will fight and on what issues.
Chairman Ian McIntyre
