  • Function / Content
    The Executive Council of Victoria, (VA 2903) currently comprising the Governor and Ministers of the Crown meets weekly for the formal exercise of the Governors executive authority. This Council has been given numerous specific powers under various Acts of Parliament. Between 1851 and 1855 the Governor as the executive arm of Government was not subject to parliamentary control with the Council then composed of the main appointed officers of the administration with the Governor.
