(2) how many staff are working for the Advisory Panel on Judicial Diversity.
The Advisory Panel on Judicial Diversity has no separate support. It is being supported by officials from within the Constitution & Judiciary Division of the Ministry of Justice, within existing budgets.
None of the officials works full-time for or on the advisory panel, but, seven spend significant time on it.
The Advisory Panel on Judicial Diversity was set up by me to give advice on possible changes to improve judicial diversity. The members were selected because of their experience. of the justice system, equality and diversity issues, and their capacity to identify and develop practical proposals for change.
The chair of the panel is Baroness Julia Neuberger DBE, while the other members of the panel are:
Dr. Nicola Brewer CMG
Dame Professor Hazel Genn DBE QC
Lord Justice Goldring
Andrew Holroyd CBE
Winston Hunter QC
