Parliament in British Politics by Philip Norton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The role and significance of parliament in the British political system has changed dramatically in the past decade with the setting up of elected assemblies in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the extension of European law making and reform of parliament itself especially in relation to the House of Lords. This major new text by a leading academic authority who is also a parliamentarian himself, revisits the central question of his highly-acclaimed earlier text Does Parliament Matter? in relation both to its role in governance and its relationship to the citizen.
