The role of the Lieutenancy
The Lord-Lieutenant is appointed by The Queen and is Her Majesty’s personal representative in Renfrewshire with the prime duty of upholding the dignity of the Crown.
Mr Clark is responsible for the organisation of all official Royal Visits to Renfrewshire by any members of the Royal Family whom he escorts throughout the duration of their visit. He also ensures that The Queen’s Private Office is kept informed about local issues relating to the area, particularly when a Royal Visit is being planned. He makes nominations for Honours and Queen’s Awards and recommends those for invitation to Her Majesty’s Garden Party held each year at The Palace of Holyroodhouse.
The Lord-Lieutenant also participates in civic, voluntary and social activities within the Lieutenancy and liaises with local units of the Armed Services and their associated cadet forces. The Lord-Lieutenant carries out other duties, such as the presentation of decorations (where the recipient is unable to attend an Investiture), The Queen’s Award for Enterprise (International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development, for businesses). The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion (for individuals), The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, The Queen’s Scout and Queen’s Guide Awards.
Among the many important roles the Lord-Lieutenant carries out in the community, with the help of his Deputy Lieutenants, is presenting a message of congratulation from HM The Queen to those celebrating their 100th birthday or 60th (Diamond) Wedding Anniversary.
