The first part of this chapter focuses on the influence of the House of Lords since the establishment of the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901 and the grant of Dominion status to New Zealand in 1907. The second part traces the influence of the Judicial House of Lords in Canada from the pre-1949 era of obedience, when Canadian courts were required to follow its decisions, to the modern era of persuasion, when Canadian courts treat House of Lords decisions as authoritative but non-binding statements of common law principle. The third and fourth parts consider the influence of the House of Lords in South Africa and India.
