Key UK legislation 1987-2017 [timeline]

Where were you in 1987? Platoon wins the best picture Oscar, the Channel Tunnel gets the go ahead, and The Great Storm batters South East England. Meanwhile in a Greek restaurant in Shepherd’s Bush, Francis Rose and publisher Alistair MacQueen come up with the idea of the Blackstone’s Statutes series.

Thirty years later the series is still going strong thanks to careful editorship and a conscientious selection of legislation. The familiar purple books have been at the sides of millions of law students through their exams.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the series, we’ve created a timeline to highlight key pieces of UK legislation passed since 1987.
