HC Deb 22 June 1992 vol 210 c103W
Mr. McCartney

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what account he takes of the political affiliation of potential magistrates in his appointment policy within the Duchy.

Mr. Waldegrave

The political affiliations of potential magistrates is a factor that needs to be taken into account by my advisory committees. These committees endeavour to recommend a bench which broadly reflects the local community as a whole.
