Synopsis

Written by expert insiders, How Parliament Works is a straightforward and readable analysis of one of the country's most complex - and often misunderstood - institutions. Covering every aspect of the work, membership and structures of both Houses, this key text provides a unique insight into the work and daily life of Parliament. It explains not only what happens but also why, and analyses the institution's strengths and weaknesses, as well as opportunities for Parliament to be more effective. The seventh edition has been substantially revised to take account of recent changes in both Houses and to cover all the key issues affecting Parliament and politics, such as: * the Fixed Term Parliaments Act; * the implications of coalition politics; * recent developments in Lords reform; * the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority's role in pay and expenses; * advances in scrutiny techniques; * changes in parliamentary cycles of business and finance; * member conduct and interests; * reform and modernisation.

It also covers the latest developments in the legislative process, party discipline and rebellion, the procedure of both Houses, select committee work, and the relationship between Parliament and the European Union. All statistics and examples have been fully updated. How Parliament Works is essential reading for anyone who has anything to do with the Westminster Parliament: journalists, civil servants, lawyers, lobbyists, business and trade associations, diplomats, overseas parliaments and international bodies - and, indeed, members of both Houses.
