Cabinet, confidence of the house, and committees should sort that out. There's likely precedent from the earlier, less organized iterations of Westminster.That function is the biggest bar to getting rid of parties. Who sets the agenda? Tables budgets?
Then, say you scrapped all organized parties, and worked out the bureaucratic functional issues. How does anything get done with the hundreds of MP's chasing their own priorities on behalf of their own ridings? Absolute gridlock. No function. To break the gridlock they find common cause with like minded MP's from like minded ridings, loose associations and power blocs form, over time get more formalized and we're back on the road to parties.
