§ Mr. Ovenden
asked the Attorney-General what criteria are applied in assessing the suitability for appointment of chairmen of industrial tribunals; and if he will publish in the Official Report a copy of the form which nominees are 436W required to complete or list the questions which they are required to answer.
§ The Attorney-General
With regard to the criteria applied in assessing the suitability for appointment of chairmen of industrial tribunals I refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Croydon, Central (Mr. Moore) on 5th February. There is no special form to be completed by candidates for these appointments. They are asked to enter particulars of their personal history and experience on a form sent to all lawyers who apply, or are recommended, for judicial or quasi-judicial appointments.
