In addition to that, Parliament also has the function of scrutinising and challenging the government on its legislative proposals as well as on a broader, more general level. It has been argued that this is Parliament’s most important function, rather than maintaining it in office. With regards to this point of view, an analysis of the present mechanisms of scrutiny and challenge used by Parliament and their effectiveness offers an insight into its validity. To begin with, Parliament, as the state legislature, plays a role in scrutinising government legislative proposals. Each bill has to go through First reading, Second reading, Committee stage, Report stage and Third reading in both the Commons and Lords.

It is through laws that policies of government are laid down for implementation. It does however have many constitutional roles to fulfil such as the power of the purse, oversight, foreign policy and legislation. It can be argues that Congress does fulfil its constitutional roles as it may deliver effective over sighting, legislation, money bills, representation and foreign policy that may provide good checks and balances. However, most would argue that Congress may not carry its roles effectively thus leading to poor scrutiny (sometimes over scrutinising) which leads to ineffective fulfilment of constitutional roles. The principle organ of the US state is to legislate, represent and scrutinise the other, safely separated, branches of the government.

Once an individual completes the simulation, he or she can see that there are many problems concerning the practices, and resolving of international transacts disputes.

One problem encountered was attempting to develop one agreement that would represent two different companies, each with its own set of government policies regarding business. Every company involved must do its part of resolving any legal disputes, such as drafting a choice-of-law clause.
This concept entails an understanding of what the “problem of language” is and how the judges use the various methods at their disposal to eliminate the confusion surrounding the wording of a statute and to grasp what the Parliament had intended with the passing of a particular Act. The concept is of great antiquity and is a practice carried out by the judges whereby they use legal reasoning and arguments along with the aid of a variety of approaches to interpret the act in question. Three different approaches to interpretation are employed by the judiciary in deciphering a statute: Literal rule, Golden rule and Mischief rule. The literal rule as the name suggests asserts that the judges should only give the wording of the act their plain and ordinary meaning and should not indulge in going beyond the actual meaning of the word in interpreting the act. The rule is readily applied to any and all statutes that come into force as it is considered by the parliament to promote certainty.

When using critical thinking for process improvement, you must first know that the problem is. In this situation, the existing process is the problem. Now that the problem has been identified, the next step is to define the criteria, goals, and the objectives. The goal and
Constitution being so vague in many areas, it appears that its power is derived by simply stating what is required and how things should work. By states adding so much detail, they clearly indicate that the detail is needed justify their powers given by the national government. With this detail comes the necessity for effective writing to ensure that clear guidelines are set. Similar to giving directions, if things aren’t precisely explained, it can lead to barriers in the legislative system and make the need for amendments even greater. A perfect example of this is in a 2009 amendment to the Ohio constitution covering the topic of casino’s in the state.
This occurs when the language in the statute is ambiguous and the judge has to use the rules of interpretation (i.e. literal, golden, mischief and purposive) to determine the intent of the parliament when it enacted the particular legislation. The human rights act 1998(HRA) as well, has increased the law-making ability of the judiciary. The interpretative provisions of the Human Rights Act 1998 have had a major impact on judicial interpretative practices. Under Section 3 of the HRA1998 the courts are required to interpret primary and subordinate legislation in a way which is compatible with the convention rights, 'so far as it is possible to do so'.
The role of the executive ‘..includes initiating and implementing legislation, maintaining order and security, promoting social and economic welfare, administering public services and conducting the external relations of the state. The judiciary is made up mainly of professional judges, and their main function is ‘to determine disputed questions of fact and law in accordance with the law laid down by Parliament and expounded by the courts and ..is exercised mainly in the civil and criminal courts.' The question which now arises is whether or not there should be a strict separation of each of the above functions. Locke stated: ..it may be too great a temptation to human frailty..for the same persons who have the power of making laws, to have also their hands the power to execute them, whereby
