Constitutional Reform Act

Volume 692: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by Lord Falconer of Thoroton on 8 May (WA 245), what procedure, including the process of consultation, they intend to follow before appointments are made of Lords of Appeal in Ordinary who will become Justices of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. [HL3728]

I am considering whether it is right for future appointments of Lords of Appeal in Ordinary to be made according to the procedure set out in the Constitutional Reform Act 2005. Before doing so, I will want to be certain that all practicalities and logistics are settled. I will make an announcement about my decision shortly.
