HC Deb 19 May 1965 vol 712 c242W
81. Mr. Hobden

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whose advice he takes in inviting people to become justices of the peace; what advisory committees exist for this purpose; and by what process these advisory committees are selected and appointed.

Mr. Houghton

I have at my disposal the advice of my Advisory Committee of which there is one for the County Palatine and a separate body for each of those cities and boroughs which have their own Commissions of the Peace. There is no set procedure for the selection of members—I make such inquiries as I think fit.
