The Defence Council is accountable to the King for its business. In practice, the Defence Council is a formal body. In addition, the three service boards (the Admiralty Board, the Army Board and the Air Force Board), which are sub-committees of the Defence Council meet annually for each service chief to report to the King on the health of their respective services.
