HC Deb 24 June 1913 vol 54 c967

asked the Prime Minister if the phrase two English judges of the finest quality, in the Memorandum on the front page of the Appellate Jurisdiction Bill [Lords], is to be understood to mean that in recommending to His Majesty two persons for the proposed law lordships he considers himself restricted to the English judiciary in making his selection?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir Rufus Isaacs)

My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question for him. The Prime Minister would consider himself restricted to the judiciary of the United Kingdom in making his selection.
