The Honourable

The prefix The Honourable or The Honorable is an honorific style, used before the names of certain classes of people. In international diplomatic relations, representatives of foreign states are addressed as "The Honourable". Deputy chiefs of mission, chargés d'affaires, consuls-general and consuls are always given the style. All heads of consular posts, whether they are honorary or career postholders, are accorded the title according to the State Department of the United States; however and high commissioners are never given the style, with the title "Your Excellency" being used. In Australia, the style is used for an administrator of a territory, government ministers, members of most state legislative councils, judges of superior courts. In May 2013, the style was given approval by the Queen to be granted to the Governor-General of Australia, both retrospectively and for current and future holders of the office, to be used in the form "His/Her Excellency the Honourable" while holding office and as "the Honourable" in retirement.

As of December 2014, the practice of appointing the vice-regal office holder, as well as former living, the style The Honourable for life has been adopted for the state governors of New South Wales, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania as well as the Administrator of the Northern Territory. In Australia, all ministers in Commonwealth and state governments and the government of the Northern Territory are entitled to be styled the Honourable; the Australian Capital Territory does not have an executive council and so its ministers are not entitled to the style. In Victoria, the style is granted for life, so it is customary for former ministers to retain the title after leaving office. In New South Wales, South Australia and Tasmania the premiers can advise the Queen of Australia to grant former ministers the style for life. In the Northern Territory, the chief minister can request the administrator to make a recommendation to the governor-general who in turn makes a recommendation to the Queen.

A minimum five years' service as a member of the executive council and/or as a presiding officer is a prerequisite. In Western Australia, conditional on royal assent, the title may become permanent after three years' service in the ministry. All such awards are published in the Commonwealth Government Gazette; the presiding officers of the parliaments of the Commonwealth, the states and the Northern Territory are styled the Honourable, but only during their tenure of office. Special permission is sometimes given for a former presiding officer to retain the style after leaving office, as is the case in the Northern Territory; the style "Honourable" is not acquired through membership of either the House of Representatives or the Senate. A member or senator may have the style if they have acquired it separately, e.g. by being a current or former minister. During proceedings within the chambers, forms such as "the honourable Member for...", "the honourable the Leader of the Opposition", or "My honourable colleague" are used.

This does not imply any right to the style. Traditionally, members of the legislative councils of the states have been styled the Honourable for the duration of their terms; that practice is still followed in Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania. In Victoria, the practice was abolished in 2003. In New South Wales, Greens NSW members of the Legislative Council, who are eligible for the Honourable style, have refrained from using it, deeming it to be "outdated" and a "colonial trapping". Judges of all superior courts are referred to formally by the style the Honourable, both during and after holding the office. In People's Republic of Bangladesh and members of parliaments are entitled to the style "Honorable". On the other hand, the prime minister and the president are styled "The Honorable" or "His/Her Excellency". In Canada, while not enshrined in any legislation, the style of address in common use has some individuals referred to as The Honourable; those who have the honorific for life include: Senators Members of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada Lieutenant governorsIn addition, some people have the honorific while in office only: The Speaker of the House of Commons of Canada Judges of superior courts and of the Tax Court of Canada, among others Members of provincial and territorial executive councils Speakers of provincial and territorial legislatures Government House Leaders of provinces and territories Territorial commissionersDerivatives include: The Honourable Mr/Madam Justice — justices of superior courts.

The Honourable Judge — judges of provincial courts and judges of district or county courts. The Governor General may grant permission to retain the title. Persons eligible to retain the title include the Speaker of the House of Commons, territorial commissioners, judges of certain courts, it is usual for speakers of the House of Commons to be made privy councillors, in which case they keep the style for life. Provincial premiers and federal opposition leaders are sometimes made privy councillors. Members of the House of Commons of Canada and of provincial legislatures refer to each other during proceedings of the house as "honourable members" but are not permitted by the social custom to have the Honourable as a prefix
