Evaluation of legislation: the British experience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper will examine aspects of the evaluation of legislation by the formal constitutional elements of the state: the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary. These various institutions approach evaluation in a variety of ways, both for constitutional reasons and sometimes for practical reasons. For instance, the Judiciary may not formally have before it the same information as either the Executive or the Legislature, and will not have the same time or resources as those institutions to evaluate legislation in a forensic context.
