The effectiveness of law making through parliament is known to be a controversial matter. The pass bills, they debate and changes laws but to what extent is it effective. The parliament makes laws in future. Which means they think ahead of what the world’s developing to and thinks of what new laws will be needed for society once this is done it allows society to know what the law is and how it will apply to them. Another thing that parliament is the debate that takes place in parliament. The members of parliament can point out the advantaged of a particular change in the law, as well as flaws in any proposed change in the law. This way the views of more selection of the public can be considered. The parliament cannot always foresee future circumstances when drafting a law, such as when the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) was passed it did not include television as this type of communication due to the fact that it didn’t exist at the time the Constitution was passed. The courts had to interpret the Constitution at a later date to include television. The parliament may be able to investigate a topic with expert information however the investigations and implantation are very time-consuming and parliament may not be able to keep up with the changes in society because there are many issues that require attention of parliament. Therefore the parliament are effective in making and changing laws but they need to be able to keep up with the changes of society and interpret other inventions that may be discovered in the future so the parliament will be able to add them in the laws they make now. They also need to speed up and focus more on the important laws and leave the less important ones to a later date.
