Abstract

Based on a wide range of primary and secondary materials, this case describes, blow-by-blow, the origins, development and outcome of the "Westland Affair" which was a major issue in British politics in 1985/6. The case will fit ideally into standard courses on British Politics since it requires students to look at issues such as collective responsibility in the Cabinet, the style of the Thatcher government, relationships between Ministries and the role and power of the Prime Minister. The case is probably best used in courses in British Politics and works well where students are familiar with fundamental themes and problems in British politics. Based on experience it will support active discussion in a single seminar lasting two hours or two seminars of an hour.
