§ Baroness Ramsay of Cartvale
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When the report of the Review of the Court of Appeal (Civil Division) will be published and when the Lord Chancellor expects to respond to it.
§ The Lord Chancellor (Lord Irvine of Lairg)
The report of the Review of the Court of Appeal (Civil Division) has been published today and copies have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses. I am very grateful to the members of the review, and in particular to Sir Jeffery Bowman for chairing it. I am at present considering their conclusions and recommendations and intend to publish a detailed response early in the New Year.
