Abstract

In 1215 Magna Carta determined freedom from executive oppression, or liberty, as

attempts to diminish the liberty of individuals. This constitutional precedence of liberty was confirmed

of the executive to parliament. Regular accounting for military expenditures especially became

liberty for the English Constitution and the contributions of accounting to preserving liberty, public

resources contained in British Parliamentary Papers and the records of parliamentary debates

continue to go largely unnoticed by all but a few accounting historians.
