The years since New Labour came to power in 1997 have seen changes to the British institutions of political power on an unprecedented scale. The reforms have been widespread, ranging from devolution of power in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, to the reform of the House of Lords and the changing role of the Monarchy. This book is the first to examine these changes collectively and in detail, placing each in its historical context, analysing problems, solutions and what the future holds for this ambitious period of reforms. The book is comprehensive in coverage, and accessibly written. As such it should be the ideal resource for undergraduate students of British Politics seeking to make sense of this complex subject.Box 6 Key points in the 1999 White Paper Modernising Government ac Emphasis upon tackling cross-cutting issues, ... including those in the private and voluntary sectors Wiring It up a Whitehalla#39;s Management of Cross-cutting Policies and ... not unnaturally, to influence outcomes in directions which favour the interests of their parties or which accord with their personal priorities in governing the country.
