HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c45W
67. Mr. Skinner

asked the Attorney-General if he will seek to introduce democratic methods and accountability into the method of selecting judges, recorders and magistrates and so on.

The Solicitor-General

No, Sir. Since all judges are recommended for appointment on the advice of Ministers fully accountable to Parliament, the method of appointment is already fully democratic and fully accountable.
