Legislation runs riot

The new Finance Bill just published in the UK runs to 686 pages and nearly as many explanatory notes. For comparison, during 1980-84 the Bill was on average 153 pages long. The trend is similar in most other countries. Nothing illustrates more clearly that the legislative process is out of control and that a radical change of the system of government is required.
