An amendment to Britain’s Constitution can be made simply by obtaining majority support in both Houses of Parliament, after which it is given the Royal Assent.
The main sources of the British Constitution are:
Statutes such as Magna Carta , the Habeas Corpus Act, the Bill of Rights, the Act of Settlement and the Reform Act of 1832 which reformed Britain’s parliamentary representation;
Political customs and conventions;
Case law, i.e. judicial decisions on constitutional matters decided in a court of law;
So-called “works of authority”, i.e. the opinions of constitutional experts who have written on the subject such as Walter Bagehot and A.D. Dicey
The European Communities Act of 1972. Since joining the European Community in 1973, the UK has also had to incorporate European legislation into its Constitution. The various European treaties have had major constitutional significance for the United Kingdom because they require Member States to subordinate their sovereignty and that Community institutions.
