High Court: Judges

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 13 June 2008, Official Report, columns 607-08W, if he will make it his policy to make details of expenses claims by High Court judges available for inspection by the public. (212427)

In accordance with general principles, I have no plans to make available, for inspection by the public, details of expenses claims by High Court judges. As I explained in my earlier answer to the hon. Member, the expenses which may be claimed by High Court judges are governed by their terms and conditions and are subject to appropriate control procedures.
