This chapter provides an overview of the themes covered in Part 3 of the book, consisting of Chapters 12 to 15. Chapter 13 examines the processes involved in making Acts of the UK Parliament. Chapter 14 looks at ‘delegated legislation’—that is, rules that have the binding force of law made by ministers and other authorities, in which Parliament has a limited scrutiny role. Chapter 15 is a case study designed to bring together and develop several key themes—notably, the relationship between the House of Commons and House of Lords in the legislative process.
