The Ministry of Justice facilitates communication between the crown dependencies and the UK government.
The crown dependencies are not part of the UK and have their own directly elected legislative assemblies, administrative, fiscal and legal systems and courts of law. They are not represented in the UK parliament and UK legislation rarely extends to them.
The Ministry of Justice (MOJ) help the crown dependencies communicate with the UK government. We process the crown dependencies’ legislation for royal assent and consult with the Islands on extending UK legislation to them. We are also involved in recommending key crown appointments in the islands.
In consultation with the islands, we have produced a fact-sheet and ‘How to’ notes on working with the crown dependencies.
