HC Deb 23 January 1967 vol 739 c969
45. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Attorney-General in view of the fact that it is now Her Majesty's Government's policy to draw justices of the peace from all sections of the community, if he will now ensure that half the number of justices of the peace shall be women.

The Attorney-General (Sir Elwyn Jones)

It is the policy of my noble Friend the Lord Chancellor that justices should be drawn in reasonable numbers from each section of the community. It does not follow that each section must be equally represented.
