Thus, although treaty making is an executive function, pressure for increased parliamentary scrutiny has increased. In addition to overcoming the 'democratic deficit' at the Commonwealth parliament level, even more concern has been expressed at the state level.

Australia's membership of the British Empire and then of the Commonwealth gave prominence to the role of the prime minister in foreign affairs, 14 as did World War II. In part because of the decline of these influences, and the greater complexity of international relations, the role of the foreign minister relative to the prime minister has tended to increase in importance. This does not mean that the prime minister's department will not try to provide alternative advice but that will be increasingly difficult to have this accepted except on very specific matters.

This shift has led to changing requirements from bilateral embassies, giving them a new role as an additional dimension to multilateral negotiations, providing briefings on the domestic constraints under which other governments operate and laying the groundwork for bilateral deals.
