As the author points out it was under the Macmillan government that QPM turned into something more than a simple guide for procedure. Since John Major approved its publication in MayQPM has attracted strong interest from scholars, journalists and politicians alike.

    The implications of the Nolan reforms still resonate today and extend far beyond the textual amendments of QPM. If his administration were to achieve its ambitious plans, ministers would have to be aware of clear, consistent and co-ordinated rules of procedure in government. Anthony Eden's concerns led to the incorporation of strict rules for ministers about accepting invitations to television programmes and acquiring prime ministerial approval before any appearance. It was the excitement of being with somebody who was so determined to get every single fact right.
