HC Deb 23 October 1968 vol 770 cc317-8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister whether, in considering Mr. Smith's demand that Her Majesty's Government should drop the condition of appeal to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, he will seek to institute instead an all-party Judicial Appeal Committee consisting of hon. and learned Gentlemen Members of this House, together with honourable and learned judges in another place.

The Prime Minister

As I said in the House on 22nd October, although the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council is, in our view, the best type of reinforcement required for the second principle, we were, and are, willing to consider alternatives.
