§ Mr. Boateng
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department by how many magistrates courts committees, and for how many petty sessions areas, justices' clerks have been put on(a) fixed-term contracts and (b) performance-related pay; and how many, and what proportion of, justices' clerks and petty sessions areas are currently affected by (a) or (b) or both.
Mr. John M. Taylor
The terms and conditions of individual members of staff are a matter for magistrates courts committees as employers. The Department has no record of the numbers of justices' clerks who are either on fixed-term contracts or receiving performance-related pay.
