In this book Daniel Greenberg draws on his experience as a legislative drafter to present a current account of how legislation is put together. In explaining the process of parliamentary drafting Greenberg identifies and examines parts of the legislative process that are not well-known, and offers thoughts on how the system works or should work. The book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students of law, policy and politics - in fact, any reader with an interest in the British Government - and will be of interest to those involved in the preparation and practice of legislation.
The Joint Contracts Tribunal issued a new Design and Build Form in 2005, a successor to the JCT Standard Form of Building Contract with Contractor’s Design. It looks substantially different from its predecessor and it is different in structure and often in its wording. This major new edition of David Chappell’s well regarded book has been substantially revised to take account of the new contract terms and different structure. It also considers the standard novation agreements from the CIC and City of London Law Society and more then 70 additional cases. It discusses areas where problems frequently arise: the allocation of design responsibility discrepancies the role of the employer’s agent payment provisions the approval of drawings

The ICE Design and Construct Conditions of Contract were originally published 10 years ago, this new edition updates the original contract with changes necessitated by new or amended legislation. As well as several substantial changes and numerous minor ones the contract has been carefully edited to improve its clarity and usability. ICE Design and Construct Conditions of Contract: 2nd edition is not a variant of the Measurement Version but an entirely separate set of conditions based on very different premises. ICE Design and Construct Conditions of Contract: 2nd edition radically departs from the normal ICE Conditions of Contract concept by making the Contractor responsible for all aspects of design and construction, including any design originally provided by or on behalf of the Employer. The Form of Tender provides for payment on a lump sum basis but other forms of payment may be used. This new edition of the Contract has been updated to include the benefits of team working and current procurement initiatives. If the procedures are followed, the parties to the Contract will be provided with an 'early warning' of circumstances that may give rise to additional costs or delay in completion of the Contract. The Contract has been revised and updated to deal with the following legislation: The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 The Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 The Finance Act 1996 and the Landfill Tax Regulations 1996 The Contracts (Rights of third parties) Act 1999 The New Roads and Street Works Act 1991
The Minor Works Building Contract is the most widely used of the JCT forms of contact, not only for simple, short contracts of moderate price, for which it is intended, but also for much larger projects for which it is often not suited at all. As a result, contractual difficulties can arise, and despite the form's simplicity an understanding of the legal background to the form is essential. This book explains the practical applications of the form from the point of view of the employer, architect and contractor. It provides a straightforward explanation of the legal aspects of the form supported by flow charts, tables and sample letters. The Fourth Edition has been revised to cover the 2005 edition of the form, which has given the contract a completely new look. The book now covers the new JCT Minor Works Building Contract with contractor's design (MWD).
