The Labour MP for Rhondda presents a lucid account of how Parliament evolved between 1801 and the end of the Thatcher era. He describes changes that included the exclusion of the landed aristocracy from the Commons, diminishing power of the Crown, the strengthening of Parliament's control of government, and votes for working men and women; he also reveals the character of parliamentary change and how 'a dedication to constitutional evolution rather than revolution has led to piecemeal reform and a fudged constitution'.
