Abstract:     
This essay (to be published as chapter 5 in L. Blom-Cooper, G. Drewry and B. Dickson (eds), "The Judicial House of Lords", Oxford: OUP, 2009) charts the principal events leading up to the Government's decision on 12 June 2003 to announce that the judicial business of the House of Lords would be transferred to a supreme court, on to the enactment of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005, and the first steps towards practical realisation of the new court. It is a case study on the British constitution's "flexible" character and the absence of strong normative controls of the constitutional reform process. This chronological narrative is designed to be a basis for a range of further analytical studies.
