They secretly pressed II. Queen Elizabeth’s British lawyers have called on Scottish ministers to change an environmental bill so carbon-cutting targets don’t affect the governor’s estate – The Guardian writes.
Specifically, they wanted to ensure that the Queen, as one of Scotland’s largest landowners, was not obligated to support the construction of pipelines to heat buildings using renewable energy.
Lawyers sought to secure the exemption by exploiting a vague law known as the “Queen’s Consent” for a period of five months, which allowed the governor to gain advance insight into the proposed legislation. It is alleged that the ruler of the United Kingdom used this method several times to assert his interests or views in British legislation, particularly in the 1960s and 1980s.
