§ Lord Patten
asked Her Majesty's Government:
By what date they expect that the Lords of Appeal in Ordinary will be removed from membership of the House of Lords. [HL309]
§ Lord Falconer of Thoroton
The noble Lord will know that it is the Government's intention to put legislation before the House later in this Session to create a Supreme Court that will have the effect of abolishing the office of Lord of Appeal in Ordinary. I 95WA expect to be able to provide the House at that time with our proposed timetable for creating the court, subject to the legislation being passed.
