Acts of Parliament in Austenasia

Acts of Parliament in the Empire of Austenasia are laws passed by the Parliament of Austenasia. They are the primary means of legislation in the Empire and can overturn any other law (including previous Acts of Parliament) except for the Constitution.

Enactment

Acts of Parliament are proposed in the House of Representatives, where they may be debated and amended. To pass through the House of Representatives, over half of all Representatives (or half of all Representatives together with the Prime Minister) must give their approval to the Act. It then passes on to the Monarch, who chooses whether or not to grant Imperial Consent to the Act - if Imperial Consent is given, the Act becomes law.

There have been several different ways throughout Austenasian history in which the above process has been carried out. Before the annexation of South Kilttown in April 2009, the only Representative was the then Crown Prince Jonathan. Comprising the entirety of the House of Representatives (then known as the Cabinet), no voting was necessary - he would simply draft an Act and present it to Emperor Terry I for Imperial Consent to be considered. This would take place in Parliament Hall, which retains its name and formal status as Parliament's official meeting place despite no longer having that function.

With the addition of South Kilttown to the Empire, the now Lord Marshal William also became a Representative. For the first time, an actual vote was required for the two Representatives to pass Acts. Although as Prime Minister the Crown Prince could cast a deciding vote to obviate William's, he nearly always desisted from doing so in the interest of democracy, and so nearly all Acts passed during this period had the support of both Representatives. Another change which came about as a result of a second Representative was a change of meeting place - as both Representatives then attended Carshalton Methodist Church, debate and voting on prospective Acts was held in a room in the church halls known as the Parlour. Once agreement had been reached, the Crown Prince would take the Act back home with him to Wrythe where the Emperor would grant Imperial Consent.

The Parlour
The Parlour, used for meetings of the House of Representatives (then known as Cabinet) between May 2009 and March 2011.

After the ascension of Esmond III to the Throne, Imperial Consent was no longer given in Parliament Hall but at Stanley Park High School, attended by both the Emperor and Prime Minister. The imperial court which developed at the school out of the Esmondian military HQ formed during the Austenasian Civil War began to play a part in debating over Acts presented to the Emperor, despite the courtiers and self-appointed advisors to the Emperor having no official legislative authority.

March 2011 saw a drastic change in the process in which Acts were passed. Crown Prince Jonathan converted to Orthodox Christianity and so no longer met Lord Marshal William each week at the Methodist church. Furthermore, Esmond III was removed from power, meaning that Imperial Consent could now come only from his co-ruler Declan I. Voting on Acts and the granting of Imperial Consent became done entirely via Skype until December 2011 when the then Princess Caroline became a Representative. Between then and the Crown Prince's ascension to the Throne, most Acts received the approval either of Lord Marshal William over Skype or Princess Caroline in person, with Crown Prince Jonathan casting the deciding vote as Prime Minister should only one of the Representatives have voted, and were presented to the Emperor to receive Imperial Consent over Skype.

When Crown Prince Jonathan ascended to the Throne and became HIM Emperor Jonathan I on 20 January 2013, it made it possible for Imperial Consent to again be granted in the Imperial Residence - the Ascension Act 2013 became the first Act to be given Imperial Consent by the Emperor in the Imperial Residence for almost three years.

Acts of Parliament commence with the following: "Be it enacted by His Imperial Majesty Emperor Jonathan I, on this [date] day of [month] in the year of the consulship of [consular year], by the advice and with the consent of the House of Representatives of every Town:"

List

Acts passed during the reign of Terry I

Only after the passing of Acts 11 and 12 did Acts begin to be passed in a properly legislative manner. Beforehand, laws were referred to as having been passed by "Government", and were passed only after being read out by the Emperor to the population of Wrythe. They were now referred to as Acts of Parliament, and became law upon the granting of Imperial Consent.

Acts passed during the sole reign of Esmond III

The ascension of Esmond III to the Throne meant that Imperial Consent was no longer granted in Parliament Hall. Acts 114 to 135 were given Imperial Consent at the Emperor's high school, with Act 113 being given Imperial Consent in Sutton high street.

  • Act 113 (Abdication of HIM Emperor Terry I) - 16 February 2010
  • Act 114 (14th Revision to Existing Laws) - 1 March 2010
  • Act 115 (Removal of Government Members) - 1 March 2010

The declaration of the Austenasian Civil War removed Lord General William from his position as a Representative - although his father Lord John became de jure Acting Representative, Crown Prince Jonathan effectively again became the only Representative who could legislate, using his deciding vote as Prime Minister to push through legislation for the Emperor to consider. An unofficial "imperial court" of military officers and self-appointed advisors grew up around the Emperor at his school, which began to exert legislative influence by advising the Emperor on political matters.

  • Act 127 (Regnal Names and Imperial Edicts) - 10 September 2010

After the passing of Act 125, Lord William again became a Representative and the Parlour was again used for voting and debating on prospective Acts.

  • Act 128 (Recognition of Gishabrun and NottaLotta Acres) - 29 September 2010
  • Act 129 (Consuls) - 21 October 2010
  • Act 130 (Moylurgian and Rushymian Royal Titles) - 21 October 2010

  • Act 134 (19th Revision to Existing Laws) - 8 December 2010
  • Act 135 (State of Emergency December 2010) - 10 December 2010

Acts 136 and 137 saw the only time Imperial Consent was granted in the Parlour, by appointed Counsellors of State.

Acts passed during the reign of Declan I

The reign of Declan I started in exceptional circumstances. Not only did he initially rule alongside Esmond III, but an ongoing State of Emergency meant that for several months appointed Counsellors of State could also grant Imperial Consent. Declan I granted Imperial Consent over the Internet, Esmond III at his high school, and the Counsellors of State in the Imperial Residence. Unless otherwise specified, all Acts of Parliament listed as being passed during the reign of Declan I were given Imperial Consent by Declan I via Skype or Facebook.

  • Act 138 (Dual Monarchy) - 19 December 2010 (passed by the Counsellors of State)
  • Act 139 (Assimilation of Rushymian and Midget Titles) - 4 January 2011
  • Act 140 (Military Reform) - 13 January 2011
  • Act 141 (20th Revision to Existing Laws) - 19 January 2011 (passed by the Counsellors of State)
  • Act 142 (The von Linden Affair) - 8 February 2011 (passed by Esmond III)
  • Act 143 (End of the December 2010 State of Emergency) - 6 March 2011 (passed by the Counsellors of State)
  • Act 144 (Order to Annex Tincomarus Department) - 6 March 2011 (passed by the Counsellors of State)

Act 143 ended the State of Emergency which Austenasia had been in for nearly three months, and so removed the ability of only three Counsellors of State to grant Imperial Consent. Although the Counsellors remained appointed until August, it would have taken five of them to grant Imperial Consent, and no circumstances in which it was necessary for them to do so arose.

  • Act 145 (Annexation of Tincomarus Department) - 7 March 2011 (passed by Esmond III)
  • Act 146 (21st Revision to Existing Laws) - 29 March 2011 (passed by Esmond III)
  • Act 147 (Addition to National Anthem) - 29 March 2011 (passed by Esmond III)
  • Act 148 (Ranking of Titles and Styles) - 29 March 2011 (passed by Esmond III)

Act 149 was a Vote of No Confidence passed by the House of Representatives (then known as the Cabinet) against Esmond III, not requiring Imperial Consent due to its nature. This removed the powers of the Throne from Esmond III, which he did not get back before being completely removed from the office of Monarch by the implementation of the Austenasian Constitution of 2011 in September.

  • Act 149 (Vote of No Confidence against HIM Emperor Esmond III) - 31 March 2011 (passed by Cabinet)
  • Act 150 (Assimilation into Austenasia of the Midget Nation-in-Exile) - 9 April 2011

  • Act 154 (Imperial Standards) - 15 July 2011
  • Act 155 (Referendum on Alternate Constitutions) - 5 September 2011

The Austenasian Constitution of 2011 came into force on 20 September 2011. In accordance with its provisions, all previously passed Acts of Parliament were repealed two days later and Esmond III was removed from his now titular office of joint Monarch. Furthermore, the way in which Acts of Parliament are named and referenced was changed.
