Description :


The evidence is still that honours are more likely to be awarded to civil servants and celebrities than to people who volunteer in their local community. The Committee heard that the process of awarding honours remains opaque, even to the Queen's representatives in the counties, the Lords Lieutenant. PASC calls for an increase in the proportion of people receiving honours for work in their local community, rather than to those who are awarded for their work as civil servants and in the wider public sector. This report sets out proposals to increase accountability and transparency and strengthening the link to the Monarch. These include: the introduction of an independent Honours Commission to consider nominations (a repeat recommendation from the last parliament); that the Prime Minister's "strategic direction" over the honours system be removed; a rebalancing of the proportion of honours awarded to civil servants and public sector workers, and volunteers in their local communities; that longer citations should be published, explaining the reason for awarding an honour; that the Lords Lieutenant should have an opportunity to consider and comment on all nominations for an honour within his or her lieutenancy; and that the Cabinet Office set out proposals for broadening the range of people who take up roles as independent members of the honours committees. The Committee also recommends, considering the decision to strip Fred Goodwin of his knighthood, that the Honours Forfeiture Committee be made independent and transparent, with clear and expanded criteria for forfeiture, chaired by an independent figure, such as a retired high court judge

Description :


The Honours Board is set in an English Preparatory School for boys whose parents intend them later to serve a four to five year stretch at a traditional English Public School. But this brilliant novel is only incidentally about the boys at Downs Park. Its major concern is with the men and women who form the teaching staff – a small world as inward-looking as a ‘family’ of hippies – and whose lives are intertwined not only with each other’s but with the moral and emotional tendrils, grown sturdy and gnarled over the years, of this admirably conducted though less than typical bastion of the English middle classes. Downs Park is admirably conducted, but under the regime of its sympathetic, intelligent, headmaster-owner, it loses more money than it makes – nor does the honours board record scholarships to the great public schools. It is, in fact, ripe for take-over, and the headmaster knows it. The second master, self-regarding, plausibly ambitious, rich and sexually athletic, knows it too. As this quiet but desperate struggle reaches a critical stage, the whole structure of the group is threatened and everyone is forced to look beyond the comforting bars of his cage. In Pamela Hansford Johnson’s masterly hands, this novel has the force of life itself.

Description :


This updated, full-colour illustrated book recounts the history of Canada’s various national orders, decorations, and medals. This expanded and updated edition of The Canadian Honours System surveys the history of Canada’s various orders, decorations, and medals, from New France’s Croix de St. Louis, Britain’s the Order of the Bath, to modern Canadian honours such as the Sacrifice Medal and recently created Polar Medal. Since the establishment of the Order of Canada in 1967, the Canadian honours system has grown to become one of the most comprehensive in the world — with more than 300,000 Canadians having been rewarded over the past fifty years. Each honour in the modern Canadian honours system, and its precursor, the British imperial honours system, is examined here in detail, including historical background, design, and criteria for bestowal. With special chapters on heraldry, protocol, and the proper mounting and wearing of medals, The Canadian Honours System is an essential reference for anyone interested in Canadian honours.
