Prior to the Constitutional Reform Act 2005, the Lord Chancellor was the formal head of the judiciary with powers of appointment. The Lord Chancellor was also a member of the cabinet and the Speaker of the House of Lords. The 2005 Act reformed the office of Lord Chancellor, establishing a clearer separation of powers between his various previous roles. The Lord Chancellor is no longer head of the judiciary: that task is now conferred on the Lord Chief Justice. The Lord Chancellor also no longer acts as Speaker of the House of Lords, the 2005 Act providing that the House of Lords shall elect its Speaker.

However, for the most part, the issue of classification of laws is fairly clear. The essential test is whether or not an Act of Parliament, or a judicial decision, relates to the structure and institutions of the state and/or the relationship between the state and the individual and his or her rights. The following are examples of Acts of Parliament of constitutional importance. Statutory sources relating to the structure and powers of the state • • • • • The Bill of Rights 1689: the all-important settlement between Parliament and the Crown, limiting the power of the Crown and establishing the supremacy of Parliament; The Act of Settlement 1700: clarifying the succession to the Crown and the independence of the judiciary; Representation of the People Acts 1837–1983, as amended, and Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000: defining the right to vote and regulation of elections and political parties; Parliament Act 1911 and 1949, House of Lords Act 1999: regulating the relations between the Commons and the Lords and reforming membership of the Lords; The European Communities Act 1972, as amended: providing for the reception of Community law into domestic law; Sources of the Constitution • • 9 The Scotland Act 1998, Government of Wales Act 1998 and 2006, Northern Ireland Act 1998: providing for the devolution of power from Westminster to national assemblies; Local Government Acts: regulating the role and powers of local government.

This approach, however, fails to emphasise the fact that conventions do impose obligations (or duties) and are far more regulatory than habits, understandings 13 Cm 7170, July 2007. Sources of the Constitution 17 or practices. However, because conventions are not legal rules, the breach of a convention will not have legal consequences: no court of law can enforce a convention, because it is not law. 2 The following examples illustrate the wide-ranging nature and application of conventions. Conventions relating to the Crown • • • • Once a Bill has passed through Parliament, the Royal Assent will not be refused.
