He points out protections afforded members other than parliamentary privilege and the view of both the courts and the legislatures concerning parliamentary debates and proceedings as evidence in court. He also sets out in detail what the House of Commons considers to be and not to be a matter of privilege, as well as the corporate powers of the Houses of Parliament.

Meticulous scholarship is combined with clarity in explanation to produce a work that helps to bridge the gap between anthropology and political science.
