This educational video and accompanying resource pack explores the role of UK Parliament in WWII.
Your students will learn about the laws passed at the start of the war, including conscription into the armed forces. They will question Parliament’s ability to scrutinise Churchill’s coalition government and explore specific challenges made by members of Parliament about decisions made.
They will learn that the House of Commons Chamber was destroyed during the Blitz and the measures in place to ensure that Parliament could continue to function throughout the war.
Finally, they will be introduced to some of the post-war legislation passed to help Britain rebuild, including the creation of the National Health Service.
