Making and adapting laws

Each member nation of the British Commonwealth is represented by its own ordinary or special assembly of committees at the House of Committees (Assembly of the House) to enable a member nation to fully take advantage of legislative activities at the Commonwealth level (legislation) and for effective cooperative self-reform.

The Supreme Congress of British Commonwealth has authority to make and adapt certain Commonwealth legal acts.

Apart from Union law and Global law, there is also Peoples’ law which is law initiated directly by a citizen of the Commonwealth, allowing the participation of the people in creation of laws, especially laws that directly affects self.

Emergency issues such as the threat of terrorism, pressure on the union government to update old laws and case law in the courts, interpreting, clarifying and re-applying established principles of law, all contribute to the need for new laws.
