John Stuart Mill on Parliamentary System - Dictionary of Arguments
Höffe I 358
Parliamentary System/Mill/Höffe: In his reflections on representative government (1), Mill argues, in accordance with the title, for an elected parliament -on the basis of popular sovereignty- and also for a separation of powers with government control. In contrast to the current understanding of representative democracy, however, parliamentary powers are limited.
Legislation/Mill: Parliament's task of not only debating ("parleting") laws, but also passing them, i.e. the legislative power, is assigned to another institution, a committee that is responsible for drafting and passing laws.
