An act that formally states to the public that the government has acted in a specific manner. A written or printed document issued by a higher government executive, such as the president or governor, that contains such a government pronouncement. The term is also used for documents issued by lower level officials that have the same effect as a proclamation from their superiors.
Proclamations are important in the governance of many countries because they indicate certain policies have been adopted by their governments. For example, a country may declare war or make peace with another nation. It may also announce changes in laws or regulations. Proclamations provide information to the public about these matters and help keep them informed about what their governments are doing.
There are two types of proclamations: official and informal. Official proclamations must be signed by the presiding officer of each house of Congress and can only be made during the existence of an actual congressional session. Informal proclamations do not require legislative action and can be made at any time by either a president or a governor. They can be made public through media announcements or even included in letters sent to members of Congress.
The text of a proclamation provides the date it takes effect and the reason for its issuance. It may also include statements on subjects such as peace plans or calls-to-arms.

In English law, statutes include laws made by the Parliament of England before 1707 and those made by the Parliament of Great Britain from 1707 to 1801 and by the Parliament of the United Kingdom from 1801 onward. Since the passage of the Statute of Westminster 1931, almost all British statutes have been made by parliamters rather than kings. This statute abolished the old system of English law under which acts of the monarch could create new law or alter existing law. Instead, it established a single system of English law which could be changed only by act of parliament.
Words statues are rules that govern the use of language. Language is always changing, and people need guidelines on how to use it correctly. For example, people often confuse their with there, so the use of "their" in place of "there" would be incorrect.
