Making Law – How Government creates legislation

Every year a number of bills are mentioned in the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament. Do you know how these bills are proposed, scrutinised and finally chosen to be in the speech?

This series of interviews, followed by a lecture, provides a unique insight in to the process by which legislation is created in the United Kingdom. All the interviewees are involved in the making of legislation in Whitehall, in Parliament, or in the wider worlds of politics.

In this selected podcast, Phillip Sales interviews Lord Falconer about “How a Government Minister gets proposals accepted for presentation as part of the Government’s legislative programme”.
