The original edition of this authoritative work on Parliament received outstanding reviews and has now been fully updated and revised by two of the UK's leading parliamentary experts. The book gives a definitive account of all aspects of the organisation and working of the House of Commons and House of Lords, showing the methods and practices by which parliamentary business is conducted, and indicating clearly how the procedures are used by Government ministers, the Opposition front bench, and back bench MPs, for their various different purposes. Research for the second edition has involved an in-depth empirical analysis of the workings of the Commons under the Blair administration, focusing on the many changes which have taken place since 1997, including the new initiatives and procedures aimed at promoting modernisation. The chapter on the House of Lords is by Sir Michael Wheeler-Booth, former Clerk of the Parliaments and member of the Royal Commission on Reform of the House of Lords, who examines the proceedings of the second chamber and discusses the effect of the House of Lords Act 1999 and implications of the Royal Commission Report. * The leading work on Parliamentary procedure * Focuses on parliament as it actually works * High calibre authors, well known in the field of parliamentary affairs * Examines the many changes since 1997
