About this book:

How do you go about drafting an Act of Parliament? In this classic text, Lord Thing, the great Victorian Parliamentary Counsel, sets out the basic rules of the art and craft of creating legislation. Operating in a field where there are no concrete rules, Thring saw the need to formulate general rules of guidance for those inexperienced in the art of legislative drafting and published his work following his appointment as First Parliamentary Counsel. Much of what he says remains relevant now and so, this new edition presents it to a modern readership.
