If a Bill is duly passed by both Houses of Parliament and presented to the Queen or her vice-regal representative for royal Assent, can ministers advise that assent be deferred or refused? The issue has recently arisen twice in the Australian States. It has exposed quite different understandings of the Sovereign's role as part of Parliament, and opened up questions as to the discretion, if any, that may be exercised by the Sovereign or her vice-regal representatives in giving Royal Assent. This article discusses examples of cases where Ministers have interfered with the grant of royal assent and the grounds upon which this might be legitimate.
