 Devon's Mining History and Stannary parliament
The authority of the stannary parliaments extended to anyone who was involved in the tin mining industry, and as this included people involved with 'tin streaming' (excavating river banks to remove the tin content) which was a popular activity needing little equipment, the laws therefore impacted a large proportion of the population.
There was originally only one Stannary authority for both Devon and Cornwall, but by by the fourteenth century seperate parliaments had been established for each of Devon and for Cornwall.

There is no written constitution to protect an indigenous national minority and no statutory guarantee of equality before the law.
The permanent censorship of the Duchy past and its constitutional relationship with Cornwall and the stannaries has meant that the challenge to this policy, as represented by those claiming minority rights for the Cornish, is interpreted by the representatives of the English national majority as acts of disloyalty to the Crown.
However implemented, impartial and independent European law can objectively interpret the rejection of the Cornish as a national minority of Britain to be institutionalised cultural and racial discrimination.
