Advantages and disadvantages of lawmaking through Westminster parliament. Legislations made through the Westminster parliament, the parliamentary system that exists in Britain has a number of advantages. The parliament’s House of Commons is composed of elected members from all parts of the country, a feature that makes its legislative process representative of the people’s opinions. This makes parliamentary legislation a democratic process because it gives people an opportunity to making lawmaking.
