Public law and constitutional practice continue to evolve rapidly. This revised edition incorporates constitutional changes brought about in the law by Parliament and the courts, and notes changes in practice. There is a new section which assesses the debate about constitutional reform, while the European dimension is highlighted by treatment of the Factortame litigation and of the Maastricht Treaty. Mrs Thatcher's overthrow is considered in relation to the personal authority of the Prime Minster. Changes in parliamentary scrutiny of the executive are set out. Recent policies affecting the relationships between central and local government are assessed, and the changing law relating to civil rights is analyzed. The position of the security and intelligence services is also examined. In its analysis of fundamental constitutional principles this account gives insights into government and Parliament, the legal system, the police, civil rights and administrative law.
