|Long title||An Act deposing the Caravaggio's from the Baustralian Imperial Throne and replacing them with the Timpson family|
|Introduced by||Nick Sullivan, Member for Mild Pond|
|Laid before Parliament|
Status: Not passed
The Monarchy Bill (Bill C14 (1st reading), Bill C16 (2nd reading), Bill C71 (3rd reading)) is a bill introduced in the House of Commons of Baustralia, by independent MP Nick Sullivan on 19 June 2019, the last day in the session of Parliament. It failed when the session ended. It was reintroduced later by the request of a constituent of Sullivans. This reading also failed. In May 2020, King John I asked the Members of Parliament to re-introduce their failed bills so they all receive three readings. The reading failed, and the bill was thrown out.
Annoyed that John I was able to be king, and hence Admiral of the Fleet, without taking courses had annoyed Sullivan, who was starting his Lieutenant commander's course. As John Timpson had taken this course, he felt that Timpson was more qualified to be king then John.
In the terms, John I would be deposed and thence known as Lieutenant Sir Jacob Patrick Caravaggio KG HRN. The royal family would be deposed of their titles, and the Dukedom of Concord would be given to John Timpson, titled John II.
The bill was drafted at 1500 then read at 1600 Eastern Time on 19 June 2019. As this was eight hours away from the end of the parliamentary session, the bill failed after crossing over into a new session.
Getting over himself, Sullivan decided not to motion a carry-over, so the bill was dropped. Later, a Baustralian in Sullivan's riding had convinced the Member to motion a carry-over of just the Monarchy bill. The second revision has been submitted to Parliament for reading later on and had changes to John I's civilian title, updating his rank to Lieutenant commander and appointing him Commanding Officer of HMS Promise. Also, heraldic provisions were also included.
The bill was sent through Parliament upon the emergency meeting called by the Minister for Foreign Affairs regarding the Union with Quebec Act and failed with a vote of 2 – 5 – 0 (Yeses – Noes – Abstentions)
On 14 May 2020, John I announced his intention to have members, who have written bills which failed, to reintroduce them for second and third reading. This bill, therefore, was introduced by the Prime Minister, Nick Sullivan, who previously introduced this bill. It failed 0-7-0.

Had the bill passed the House of Commons before the end of the session, John would have either not granted it royal assent, dissolved parliament, or granted it royal assent and given the throne to John Timpson as John II.
