Bailiff – the civic head of the Island and President of the Royal Court and the States Assembly
Customary – a system or practice that is officially recognised because it has been done that way for so long.
Prohibition – when something is not allowed
The Bailiff exercises a customary right (which derives from the prohibition against begging) over the collecting of money in public places. There are a number of different types of permissions that apply before you can hold a public collection.
