How does the British policy process deal with 'conscience' issues? Does parliament still decide? What influences MPs? This book considers how the British policy process deals with 'conscience' issues, those social issues which have strong moral overtones. It covers eight of the main topics to have been discussed by parliament in the last quarter of a century - abortion, censorship, divorce. Sunday trading, homosexuality, war crimes, disability rights and animal welfare.
