This chapter deals with the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 and how it reformed the office of Lord Chancellor, removing both the Lord Chancellor's judicial role and his role as Speaker of the House of Lords. It created an independent Judicial Appointments Commission, and provided for the introduction of the formal legal, as opposed to constitutional, separation of the judicial and legislative functions of the House of Lords. The chapter analyses the further impact of these reform in changing the UK constitutional framework.

Keywords:   rule of law, constitution, parliamentary sovereignty, Speaker, House of Lords
