The fifth edition of this popular collection of essays covers the main areas of recent constitutional change and reform. Professors Jowell and Oliver have brought together an impressive list of contributors, all leading specialists in British constitutional law, to provide considered commentaries on the latest developments in constitutional reform and to anticipate future changes. Topics include: devolution; the reform of the House of Commons and the House of Lords; public service reform; local government; issues surrounding the creation of a new Supreme Court; the appointment of judges; regulation; control of public expenditure; freedom of information; and the regulation of standards in public life. These changes are considered against the background of general principles and trends, including constitutionalism; parliamentary sovereignty; respect for human rights; British membership of the European Community and Union; and the internationalization of public law. Finally the collection considers possible further reforms, including the introduction of proportional representation for elections to the House of Commons; the development of a home grown bill of rights; and the adoption of a written constitution for the UK.
