One from Seven Hundred: A Year in the Life of Parliament provides information pertinent to the 700th anniversary of the Parliament in 1965. This book discusses the important reforms in parliamentary procedures, including modern voting techniques, the establishment of specialist committees, a time limit for all speeches, and morning sittings three days a week. Organized into 11 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the role of the Parliament, which is a necessity to have some sort of formal machinery for the approval and processing of legislation. This text then examines the empirical changes made to the parliamentary procedure to meet the needs of the moment. Other chapters consider the Rhodesian crisis that dominated the first months of the Parliament. This book discusses as well the changing roles and circumstances over the centuries that have left an indelible mark on Westminster. This book is a valuable resource for teachers and students.
