This chapter focuses on the process by which laws have been made. It takes a deliberately wide view of the legislative process, looking at what happens before a Bill is introduced, when the conventional wisdom asserts ‘all executive policy and most legislation is conceived, drafted and all but enacted’, as well as at what happens once it embarks on the parliamentary stages of the process. It begins by looking at the expectations that were held of the process.
