    Salve: I submit this formulation to remove obstructions in its working. This is what I mean by privilege being a shield. To prevent people from interfering in your working.

    Salve: The shield of privilege is to prevent the crown, which in our system will be the executive from interfering with the working of a house.

    Salve: If that power is not given, it will lead to considerable degree of friction. I think Mr. Dhawan appeared for the State of TN when WTO treaty was challenged. For such a debate, would they have the privilege of summoning the secretary of foreign affairs to give evidence?

    Salve: It could extend to those who are connected with executives. Because parliament primarily has two broad functions, legislative and executive.

    Salve: The privilege was that you were exempted because the law of rem will not apply to you. That’s how the word privilege came otherwise they would have called it powers.

    Salve: I want to start first with the proposition that a privilege is primarily meant to be shield. A privilege is considered as something necessary to enable the house to conduct its business.
