1A body of advisers appointed by a sovereign or a Governor General (now chiefly on an honorary basis and including present and former government ministers).
- The Privy Council is an unelected body; constitutionally it is answerable only to the reigning monarch.
- The reference by the Prime Minister to the Privy Council is merely a sop to overactive consciences.
