Legislation at Westminster: parliamentary actors and influence in the making of British law

Russell, Meg, author; Gover, Daniel (Political researcher), author

The Westminster Parliament is a highly visible political institution, and one of its core functions is approving new laws. Yet Britain's legislative process is often seen as executive-dominated, and Parliament as relatively weak. As this work shows, such impressions can be misleading. Drawing on the largest study of its kind for more than 40 years, Meg Russell and Daniel Gover cast new light on the political dynamics that shape the legislative process. They provide an account of the passage of 12 government bills - collectively attracting more than 4000 proposed amendments - through both the House of Commons and House of Lords
