Upon the concurrence of all these conditions precedent the Constitution enables the Governor-General to dissolve the Senate and the House of Representatives simultaneously. This power would be exercised by him, as the Queen's representative, in the same manner as other prerogatives of the Crown; viz., according to the advice of Ministers who have the confidence of Parliament.
