HC Deb 29 July 1982 vol 28 cc672-3W
Mr. Morgan

asked the Attorney-General whether he is required, or permitted, in the exercise of his functions as Attorney-General, to advise with regard to the appointment, or, where appropriate, reappointment of any of the following: (a) Lords of Appeal in Ordinary, (b) judges of the Court of Appeal, (c) puisne judges of the High court, (d) circuit judges, (e) Queen's counsel, (f) recorders of the Crown court, (g) deputy circuit judges, (h) masters and registrars of the High Court, and (i) registrars of the County court.

The Attorney-General

All these appointments are made by, or on the advice of, the Prime Minister or the Lord Chancellor and it is for them to decide whom to consult. Obviously the Attorney-General gives advice if he is consulted.
