Parliamentary and Government Role

Until devolution in 1999, all Lord Advocates were, by convention, members of the United Kingdom Government, although the post was not normally in the Cabinet.

Until devolution, all Lord Advocates were, by convention, members of either the House of Commons or the House of Lords to allow them to speak for the Government.

Ranald Alasdair MacDonald v The Lord Advocate of Scotland (4556 words)
At the request of the Lord Lyon, an informal hearing took place, attended by the petitioner, his solicitor and counsel, and certain of the witnesses, for the purpose of discussing questions arising from the affidavits and submissions.
Thereafter the Lord Lyon, on 10 December 2002, pronounced an interlocutor refusing the prayer of the petition.
Lord Lyon Blair's misdirection lies in his having elevated to the status of an absolute requirement something which is truly no more than a cross-check on the reliability of the sloinneadh, which might be useful in certain circumstances, but which is unnecessary in the circumstances of this particular case.
MacCormick v. Lord Advocate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1688 words)
Lord Advocate (1953 SC 396) was a Scottish legal action in which John MacCormick (the rector of the University of Glasgow) and Ian Hamilton contested the right of Queen Elizabeth II to style herself "Elizabeth II" within Scotland.
The Lord Advocate admitted that the Act was not self-explanatory, and offered in supplement a ‘White Paper,’ which he indicated had been made available in the Vote Office prior to the consideration of the bill.
Be that as it may, I consider that the Lord Advocate failed to show that there is, or ever was, Parliamentary authority for the adoption by Her Majesty of the name and the ‘numeral’ which in fact were adopted on Her Majesty's accession and have been used ever since.
