The Colonial Council, officially the Colonial Council of Adammia, was a secondary legislature in the Empire of Adammia. Its purpose was to allow the Colonies of Adammia to contribute legislation to the Empire's primary legislature, the Ruling Council. Presided over by the Lord Chancellor, the Colonial Council could discuss bills which, if passed, were forwarded to the Ruling Council by means of the Delegate of the Colonies, which acted as a proxy seat for the Colonial Council on the Ruling Council. Each colony was allowed between one and three seats on the Council, which were filled according to the local laws of that colony. The Colonial Council could only discuss legislation which affected either only the colonies, or the entire Empire, as opposed to regular Acts of the Ruling Council which by default only affect the Empire's Provinces.

History

The Colonial Council was the result of Lord Sir Grant Hawkins, Governor of Adammic Columbia, complaining to the Emperor, Adam I, about the difficulties the colonies had in contributing legislation to the Empire, in May 2015. Adam I conceived the Colonial Council as a solution to the problem, which was met with approval by the governors of both colonies at the time, Adammic Columbia and Borealia. The Ruling Council passed the Colonial Council Act 2015 on 16 July 2015, formally establishing the Colonial Council.

On 15 March 2017, in response to deep inactivity within the Empire, Imperial Decree XLVI dissolved the Colonial Council until further notice.
