Abstract

Specialization by backbenchers in Parliament has long been accepted as a truism: with the consequence that "there has been no comprehensive examination of specialization in the House of Commons."1 Only recently have demands for the study of specialization been heard in Britain.8 Yet, whilst British academics have been talking of such a study, American political scientists have actually put their results where their mouths are. Numerous studies dealing with specialization in both Houses of Congress have been published.3 The purpose of this paper, therefore, is partly to redress the balance.
