Mr. Barry Field

To ask the Attorney-General what is the total number of advisory committees on appointment of justices; and if he will make it his policy to list those that have requested that their names are not revealed.

The Attorney-General

There are 95 advisory committees on justices of the peace in the Lord Chancellor's area of responsibility and 17 in the area of responsibility of the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster. All advisory committees are to make known their membership by the end of 1992. This follows a decision by both Chancellors announced by the Lord Chancellor on 17 June 1988.
