Freebase

  1. Proclamation

    A proclamation is an official declaration. In English law, a proclamation is a formal announcement, made under the great seal, of some matter which the King in Council or Queen Regnant in Council desires to make known to his or her subjects: e.g., the declaration of war, or state of emergency, the statement of neutrality, the summoning or dissolution of Parliament, or the bringing into operation of the provisions of some statute the enforcement of which the legislature has left to the discretion of the king in the announcement . Royal proclamations of this character, made in furtherance of the executive power of the Crown, are binding on the subject, "where they do not either contradict the old laws or tend to establish new ones, but only confine the execution of such laws as are already in being in such matter as the sovereign shall judge necessary". Royal proclamations, which, although not made in pursuance of the executive powers of the Crown, either call upon the subjects to fulfil some duty which they are by law bound to perform, or to abstain from any acts or conduct already prohibited by law, are lawful and right, and disobedience to them is an aggravation of the offence
