All of the material in this edition is presented with full commentary on the historical circumstances which have shaped the current approach to parliamentary business. Key speakers's rulings and statements are also documented and the considerable body of practice, interpretation and precedents is amply illustrated.

This third edition of House of Commons Procedure and Practice is not only a look back at the period from January 2009, when the Second Session of the Fortieth Parliament opened, to the beginnings of the Forty-Second Parliament, but also a historical overview of how the customs and practices of our parliamentary system have developed and changed.
