The British Constitution in the Twentieth Century

Jeffrey Jowell

British Academy

This chapter examines the stages of development of administrative law in Great Britain during the twentieth century, describing the different attitudes towards the exercise of state power and its legal control over the century. It explains that the century began with a concern for procedural justice and a particular concept of the rule of law, and ended with judicial constraints upon both the procedures and the substance of official decisions, justified by constitutional rights.

Keywords:   administrative law, Great Britain, state power, legal control, procedural justice, rule of law, judicial constraints, constitutional rights
