The giving of royal assent to proposed laws was the centre of a controversy in Victoria in 2005. These events directed fresh attention to the power of the Queen's representative, the Governor, and of the Victorian Government, over Bills that have passed both Houses of Parliament but not yet become law. This article comments on the legal basis of royal assent and the question of whether the government can advise the Governor to withhold assent to a Bill that has passed both Houses.
