§ Mr. William Wilson
asked the Attorney-General how many persons resident outside the United Kingdom the Lord Chancellor has invited to serve in a judicial or quasi-judicial capacity in courts or tribunals set up or to be set up under the Industrial Relations Act, 1971.
§ The Attorney-General
None of the persons appointed to the National Industrial Relations Court was resident outside the United Kingdom when invited to serve. Of the persons the Lord Chancellor has since the commencement of the Industrial Relations Act, 1971, invited to serve as chairmen of industrial tribunals (England and Wales), three were resident outside the United Kingdom at the time of the invitation. Of these two have taken up appointment after becoming resident in the United Kingdom and the third will be resident in the United Kingdom from the beginning of next month with a view to taking up appointment later.
