Mr. Jonathan Harris, a law student, is studying the unwritten British Constitution and learns about two important conventions that help preserve judicial independence.

Article 9 of the Bill of Rights 1689 enshrines the longstanding privilege of Parliament: freedom of speech and debate. This privilege is essential for allowing Members of Parliament to speak freely on any matter without fear of outside interference or legal repercussions, thereby ensuring that Parliament can perform its functions effectively and transparently. 

Key Point: Parliamentary privilege, particularly freedom of speech within Parliament, is a cornerstone of the UK's constitutional framework. It protects legislators from external pressures, thereby upholding the integrity and independence of the legislative process.
