The New Year has got off to a good start with the arrival of my latest publication. It is a chapter, ‘Parliament Act 1911 in its Historical Context’, published in Law in Politics, Politics in Law, edited by David Feldman and published by Hart Publishing. The chapter derives from a paper I gave on the Parliament Act at a conference, organised by the University of Cambridge Centre for Public Law in November 2011, to mark the centenary of the Act. Regular readers will not be surprised to know that it builds on my 2011 History of Parliament Annual Lecture, which analysed the reasons for the passage of the Act.
The book has a broad range, with sections covering Lawyer-Politicians, Lawyers Advising Government, Politics and Legal Change (the section that includes my chapter), and Politics, the Constitution and Beyond. You can click on the title of the book (above) for more details.
