The release of royal secret correspondence was immediately linked to the dismissal of the prime minister Gough Whitlam will again invoke the role of monarchy in modern Australia, experts say.
National Archives of Australia will be on Tuesday morning released the much-awaited “court papers”, a series of more than 200 exchanges between the Queen, her personal secretary, Martin Charteris, and Sir John Kerr, the then governor general of Australia, in the critical period leading up to Kerr’s highly controversial dismissal. Gough Whitlam’s Labor government in November 1975.
Kerr moves to force Reform of Whitlam’s left-wing government from office, after conservative opposition has blocked allocation bills in the upper house of parliament, remains the most sensational moment in modern Australian politics, caused a grudge for years.
Despite the importance of the letters to Australian history, they remain hidden from the public’s view of the wrong reason that they are “private” records, and are therefore excluded from the usual 30-year access rules and under a potential Queen embargo. unlimited.
Historian Jenny Hocking’s a landmark case in the high court, after a four-year legal battle, causing the rejection of that argument and forcing the archive to reconsider its request for public access.
Speaking before the letters were released, Hocking said it was impossible to imagine they would contain anything other than “dramatic revelations”.
“We know that there are more than 1,000 pages, we know that there are more than 200 letters, they will be a series of truly dramatic revelations, it is impossible to imagine otherwise,” Hocking told the Guardian. “They will tell us how much detail Kerr gave the Queen about what he hoped to do.”
He said other records kept by Kerr – including his 1980 journal – had been already pointed for importing documents.
The sheer volume of the letters was unknown until Hocking brought the archives to court to secure their release.
“We don’t know how many letters there are except that it came out as part of a court case, that there are hundreds of these letters, there are a total of 1,200 pages in material that we will see,” Hocking told the Guardian.
“So, ownership is extraordinarily significant, I would say the most important set of documents about the sacking of the Whitlam government has been released in the last decade.”
The archives will release letters at 11:00 on Tuesday (2:00 in the UK). This release is expected to consist of six files, consisting of 212 letters, including attachments such as “newspaper clippings, reports and copies of letters relating to meetings and events attended by Sir John Kerr during his tenure as governor general”.
Whitlam’s dismissal is one of the most controversial episodes in Australian political history.
Kerr was dismissed without warning the elected government holds a clear parliamentary majority and appoints Malcolm Fraser, the Liberal leader.
Hocking believed that court papers could reveal what the Queen said, through her secretary, and whether she influenced Kerr’s actions.
“I am very happy, really, that the archive has agreed to open all the letters in full,” he said.
Relations between the UK and community clubs after divorce, in principle, are set for March 30, are still unknown. Despite their doubts, Brussels warns early on that there is a risk: that couples who are still the focus of unfair practices when they no longer comply with EU rules Spain has tried to limit this possibility in Gibraltar with an international agreement signed on Monday by the Spanish Foreign Minister, Josep Borrell, and the British Presidential Minister in charge of Brexit, David Lidington. Foreign sources have explained to EL PAÍS the main lines of this document.
The Government believes that the scheme will be implemented as soon as possible and within the framework of the UK withdrawal (with or without agreement). It must be approved by Congress because it is an international agreement. London has so far refused to make concessions in this area, but Brexit’s concern that it will leave its colony isolated from community clubs has served as an incentive to forge an alliance with Spain. In this context, the four memorandums signed last November between London and Madrid were also framed to soften the main dispute related to Rock (among them, the price of tobacco, which agreed to raise Gibraltar to limit smuggling).
The tax agreement establishes an objective scale to determine who is a tax resident in Gibraltar and who is not. Citizens who spend more than 183 days a year, have their spouse with a place to live in Spain, have a habitual residence or have two-thirds of their assets in Spanish territory must pay taxes to the Spanish Ministry of Finance. The rule affects those currently considered tax residents in Gibraltar.
The source consulted ensured that this type of deviation was, for the time being, not so large, but they warned that, without commitment between London and Madrid, they could grow after Brexit. “We have removed all incentives for residents of Spain who want to build their business in Gibraltar. We protect ourselves for the future, “predicted sources consulted.
More relevant than people chapter is that of a company. Spanish authorities calculate that there are around 55,000 companies based in this small region of 30,000 people, close to one of the poorest areas in Spain, Campo de Gibraltar. If the British colony were a country, it would be the third region with the highest GDP per capita in the world. And unemployment is 1%, compared to 35% for La Línea de la Concepcion.
With this imbalance as the basis, Spain hopes to end unfair practices through a set of criteria for legal entities. These entities will be taxed by Spain when most assets are in Spain, when their income comes from the region, when the people managing it are tax residents in Spain or when most of the rights to capital are exercised by Spain.
For these very strict rules, some exceptions are made to accommodate companies that really have activities outside of Spain. All companies incorporated in Gibraltar before November 16, 2018 and who can demonstrate, among other requirements, that 75% of their income from Gibraltarian activities will escape the norm.
The success of this scheme will depend on the third leg contained in the agreement: the exchange of information. The Gibraltarian Administration will share tax data with the Spanish ones. There will even be several automatic transfers. They will be the ones who influence the data of workers in Gibraltar who live in Spain and vehicles, ships and aircraft registered in Rock. The same thing will apply to Gibraltarians who work in Spain or have assets in this country.
Asked about the pact, a British spokesman referred to a recent statement by Rock’s chief minister, Fabian Picardo: “I am very pleased that we can reach agreement on this historically complex issue.”
One of the main incentives to start the United Kingdom in these negotiations is to improve the reputation Gibraltar will get if the agreement is fulfilled. Spain was determined to remove the Stone from the list of tax sites when it discovered that the British colony adopted the provisions of this agreement. Initially, it was proposed that this commitment be included in the wording of the agreement. In the end the text has run out of references to that future.
However, sources consulted at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs guarantee that this is the goal and that several declarations, without binding value, might be made, reflecting the new situation.
Foreign authorities reject the name adopted by Spain and provide examples of information exchange agreements that they have signed with other EU countries, including Germany, France and Italy. Community clubs do not refer to Gibraltar as a tax haven (Brussels has so far tried to remain neutral in litigation involving two Member States).
To guarantee future information exchange and to prevent fraudsters, Spain has been inspired by the French-owned model with Monaco. Foreign negotiators have used this French scheme as a basis, which they consider very secure, and have tightened it in the case of Gibraltar, according to their interpretation.
El Peñón has a very attractive tax for the company and capital. Corporate tax has a maximum rate of 10% of company profits, compared to the general 25% in Spain.

REUTERS / Loren Elliott (Reuters) – Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (RCL.N) said on Wednesday it would lay off or leave about 26% of its workforce in the United States, affecting nearly 1,300 of more than 1,300 of its 5,000 employees in the country, when coronavirus strangles international travel. The news came when a pandemic that spread rapidly led to the extension of the “no sail order” for all cruise ships by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in the US, because it looks to curb the spread of the virus. “The majority are laid off,” said a company spokesman, without separately mentioning the percentage of leave and layoffs. The Miami Herald reported the news earlier in the day that added that most of the reduction was permanent layoffs, despite some 90-day leave with benefits paid.
