(p.76) 4 Theories of Parliamentary Sovereignty After 1931: New and Revised
The Constitution of Independence


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the writings of constitutional theorists who challenged the Diceyan orthodoxy. Spearheaded by Ivor Jennings, this view was never so well expressed as by his younger University of London colleague, Richard Latham, son of the Chief Justice of Australia. This book attributes much of the hard intellectual work on the ‘new’ and ‘revised’ view of parliamentary sovereignty to Latham (whose promising academic and professional career was tragically cut short in 1943). HWR Wade, KC Wheare and Geoffrey Marshall are also featured.

Keywords:   Jennings, Latham, Wade, Marshall, Wheare
