Abstract

Henrik Bech Seeberg writes that a government is likely to adopt legislation covering the opposition’s position in order to silence opposition agenda-setting. The model is tested on the manual coding of 316 Acts of Parliament adopted by the government and 26,533 Prime Minister’s Questions from the opposition across six issues between 1979 and 2015.
