star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>The exercise of the Royal Prerogative of Mercy may currently take one of three forms:</p><p> </p><p>i) The grant of a Free Pardon;</p><p>ii) The grant of a conditional Pardon;</p><p>iii) Remission of all or part of a penalty</p><p> </p><p>By Constitutional convention, the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice (in succession to the Home Secretary) is responsible, in England and Wales (and the Channel Islands), for recommending to Her Majesty the exercise of the prerogative of mercy to grant a Royal Pardon. In Northern Ireland the responsibility lies with the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland for reserved matters and the Justice Minister for Northern Ireland for devolved matters. In Scotland it is devolved to the First Minister. The Secretary of State for Defence also has the responsibility in relation to members of the armed forces.</p><p> </p><p>Each department or administration is responsible for maintaining their records. I am not aware of any problems with retrieving such records for this period relating to royal pardons granted on the recommendation of the Secretary of State for Justice.</p>
