M3: Knighthood



The Statute Law Revision Programme considers all instruments in this category to be suitable for revocation.


This category consists of an order requiring the approval of the king of the then-United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (at the time, this was George IV) before people could receive a knighthood. The instrument was made pursuant to prerogative authority.


The Statute Law Revision Programme consulted with the Department of the Taoiseach on the instrument in this category. The Department agreed that it was suitable for revocation.
