Do We Need Written Constitution?

In his article entitled, ‘The Sound of Silence: Constitutional Law Without a Constitution’ (1994) Law Quarterly Review, Sir Stephen Sedley notes , that it can be claimed:

" this country we have constitutional law without having a constitution, not because our constitution is unwritten but because our constitutional law, historically at least, is merely descriptive: it offers an account of how the country has come to be governed."

Dynamic and Evolving Constitution

Nolan LJ in M v Home Office (1992), that:

"...the proper constitutional relationship of the executive with the courts is that the courts will respect all acts of the executive within its legal province, and that the executive will respect all decisions of the courts as to what its lawful province is."

Rule of Law

In The Rule of Law in Britain Today (1989) the Constitutional Reform Centre noted that:

"Dicey held it to be essential to the rule of law that public authorities should be subject to the same law as the ordinary citizen, administered in the ordinary courts, and many of the European systems of law (based on the Roman law tradition) failed the test in giving the State a special position in law"

Parliamentary Sovereignty

in 1978 the House of Commons Select Committee on Procedure concluded that:

Judicial Review

Judicial Review

David Pannick QC noted in The Times, 1995:

"judges are well aware of the constitutional reality that Parliament exercises very little control over the content of primary legislation, let alone delegated legislation or administrative decisions. Nor can Parliament realistically be expected to do so, given the growth in the business of government and in the number of discretionary powers conferred. Constitutional fictions are an unpersuasive basis for seeking to encourage judges to restrain themselves when they are asked to provide remedies for the victims of injustice or unfairness."
