HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 cc837-8W
47. Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department, pursuant to her answer of 24 June,Official Report, column 713W, on wigs, if she intends to canvass the views of all members of the legal profession in connection with her review of court dress. [65345]

Ms Rosie Winterton

The Lord Chancellor will publish a formal consultation document on court working dress, informed by the results of the public opinion survey, later this year. The views of all members of the legal professions will be welcomed, but the consultation will be public and we hope other interested parties, such as the general public, court users, judges and court staff, will also respond.
