Study of Parliament Group Papers

The Study of Parliament Group publishes on its website a range of research reports, seminar papers and other material generated as part of the Group’s various activities. These are papers that would not otherwise be in the public domain, but which the Group considers to be valuable contributions to public awareness of and discussion about the matters that fall within its objects.

The views expressed in these papers are those of their authors and do not represent the Group’s views on their subject matter. Users of the Group’s website who wish to contact the author(s) of any of its papers are invited to do so directly via the addresses given.
