    Part of the question for my public law coursework states 'the UK Parliament today lacks democratic accountability'. Is this referring to how Parliament is held to account or how Parliament holds the government to account?
    Thanks

    its referring to how Parliament itself is held to account-

    possibly best to argue in favour of the question and say that Parliament does lack democratic accountability

    There are counter arguments such as judicial review and devolution, but apart from these it is mostly unaccountable and thus unrepresentative
