HC Deb 06 July 1976 vol 914 c457W
Mr. Cryer

asked the Attorney-General if he will review the rules and practice applicable to the judiciary in declaring their interests in cases on which they preside.

The Attorney-General

It is a fundamental rule in the administration of justice that a person cannot be judge in a cause in which he is interested, save with the express agreement of the parties. My noble Friend and I see no need for any review of this rule, the breach of which may result in the quashing of any decision made in contravention of it.
