§ Mr. MITCHELL-THOMSON
asked what is the composition of the Committees formed with a view to advising the Lord Chancellor in regard to appointments of justices of the peace in Scotland; and by whom the members of such Committees were nominated or recommended for nomination?
§ The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. Ure)
There is no stereotyped composition of the Advisory Committees. The object is to obtain fair-minded and reasonable representatives of different opinions. The Lord Chancellor's ordinary course is to consult with the Lord Lieutenant and with any other persons who know the district.
