It was implicit in the CCSU Case that many of the important remaining prerogative powers would often be held to be non-justiciable. Some powers which were specifically mentioned as not being subject to judicial review were the power to enter into treaties and the conduct of foreign policy, the defence of the realm and the control of the armed forces, the prerogative of mercy, the dissolution of Parliament and the appointment of Ministers.Such powers are governed by broader policy considerations which are more appropriately entrusted to the political branches of government, and which are unsuited to examination by the courts.
