Further to our recent article in the Standard, it appears that the Guardian has won it's Freedom of Information request.
It appears the Royals are hiding behind the doctrine that they only act on Ministerial advice; however, given that we know that the Monarch may "advise, encourage and warn" ministers in secret, we can't know how much of that ministerial advice in turn is based on reflecting back the Royal's wishes to themselves.
This is the Government guidance:
It quotes a journal article, which plainly states:Quote:Uniquely among anyone who might be affected by a
public general Bill, the monarch’s permission is essential before any Bill touching the Crown may be passed by either House of Parliament. If such a Bill lacks such permission it cannot be passed:36 if it is passed without it, it is null and void.
An example on which the crown was required to give consent was:Quote:A.17 On the bill for the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, Queen’s
consent was required for provisions enabling the prosecution of the Crown Estate
Commissioners (a body corporate under section 1 of the Crown Estates Act 1961) for
corporate manslaughter or corporate homicide. On the basis that any resulting fine would be
paid from Crown Estate revenues, the bill could affect the hereditary revenues of the Crown.January 20, 2013 at 12:44 am #91755SocialistPunkParticipant
