Afternoon

Im searching for the web for some examples to use in my AS next week. However I was stumped when it came to the topic of Parliament. I was wondering if anybody could help me!

Examples needed

1) Examples for 'Strengths of Parliament'. Something for legitimation, scrutiny, representation, legislating, redress of grievances, deliberation.

2) Examples for 'Weaknesses of Parliament'. Something again for legitimation, scrutiny, representation, legislating, redress of grievances, deliberation, but in a negative way!

3) Examples for 'Functions of the House of Commons'. Something for legitimation, scrutiny, accountability, redress of grievances, law making, legislating.

4) Examples for 'Reform of the House of Commons'. Something to illustrate reform within procedure, select committees, dissolution, back bench power, electoral system, question time, prestige.

5) Examples for 'Roles of House of Lords'. Something for legislative role, scrutinising role, deliberative role, legitimating role, judicial role.

6) Examples of 'Reforms in the House of Lords'. Anything here is greatly appreciated!

7) Example of 'Failed Private Members Bill' (preferably at the Second Reading).

8) Example of a 'Standing Committee used for a Bill' at the Committee Stage (so it ceases to exist after the Bill is passed.)

9) Example of when the 'Parliament Act' has been used on a Bill.

10) Examples of 'The Role of MPs'. Something for the representative, the 'watchdog', the loyal party member, the 'trouble-shooter', the legislator.

I understand this is a mass of stuff. Even just suggesting something for one part of one question will help me greatly. Any links to news reports would be amazing.

Thank you so much!

I am struggling finding examples too. I can't find anything on the web, until I found your post, hoping to get answers. Looks like you will have to ask your teacher and I don't think they will be able to help, since they only just do their job and nothing further than that (which includes going through the PowerPoint presentations FOR YOU just to find examples which were taught in the lesson).

Nothing is in the 'Essentials of UK Politics' book either.

the books are outdated. the authors will only be releasing updated editions next year. So in the meantime you will have to study the textbook and google for recent examples.

There aren't examples in the book at all is what i was saying, regardless of whether it's outdated or not.

Also no matter how wide the web is.....there are no clear examples.
