The book is designed to provide a comprehensive and readable insight into the structure of contemporary legal controls of administrative power through the courts, Parliament and other agencies. The mult-faceted role of the law in the context of an unwritten constitution is stressed. The book also deals with changes in the direction and deployment of administrative power as well as with the evolving structures of local government and the tensions between local governmental power and central governmental control. A broad view is taken of the issues, extending from the essential constitutional context, through the administrative agencies, judicial review, remedies, and the position of the Crown to the ombudsman remedy for maladministration.
