Laws and Flaws: Lapses of the Legislators

By Edward F. Iwi
Odhams, Essential Books, 1956
224 pp. $21.00

Whether it be legal to send the Crown out of the United Kingdom, whose power is symbolized by the mace that lies on the table of the House of Commons, whether the Cloth of Estate was burned up in 1834 or remains in the form of a wooden canopy, are only some of the fascinating issues that engage the attention of Mr. Iwi. His interesting essays are not limited, however, to curiosities, but deal also with such questions as delegated legislation, the reform of the House of Lords, administration of the judiciary, some issues of parliamentary procedure, and the case for new organs to reflect the new state of the Commonwealth.
