List of current members of the Privy Council

This is a list of current members of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, along with the roles they fulfil and the date when they were sworn of the Council. Throughout this article, the prefix "The Rt Hon." is omitted, because every Counsellor bears it, as is the postnominal "PC", as every Counsellor who is also a peer uses it.

The Council is composed mostly of politicians (be they from the British government, other parties, or Commonwealth governments) and civil servants, both current and retired (since membership is for life). Among those politicians generally sworn of the council are Ministers of the Crown, the few most senior figures of the Loyal Opposition, the Leader of the "third party" (when such exists), and a couple of the most senior figures in the devolved British governments, including the First Ministers. Besides these, the Council includes a very few members of the Royal Family (the consort and heir apparent only), a few dozen judges (the Supreme Court Justices, the Senior Judges of England and Wales, and the Senators of the College of Justice of the Inner House in Scotland) and a few clergy (the three most senior Lord Bishops in the Church of England).

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Members may be appointed "by Order" or "by command". In the former case, two orders are recorded: one for the appointment and one reflecting the person has taken the oath (or affirmation). Members appointed by command are appointed at the meetings at which they are sworn, generating an order only for the oath. Where there is one date listed and it is preceded by "App.", the person has been appointed by Order but not sworn. Where only one date is shown, from October 2000 forward it means the person was appointed by Command. Full dates before October 2000 are gleaned from Leigh Rayment's list of Privy Counsellors 1969–present, and bare years from the Privy Council's list of current members. It is not clear whether these are dates of appointment or oath.
  2. ^ Reported roles and dates conflict.
  3. ^ Called "Minister for Transport" until 1981.
  4. ^ Rodgers was Minister for Transport while still a Labour MP. He was later part of the "Gang of Four" Labour MPs who split off to form the Social Democrat Party, which later merged with the Liberal Party.
