HL Deb 12 January 2005 vol 668 c61WA
Lord Patten

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Falconer of Thoroton on 13 December (WA 56), whether the senior judges and judges' representative organisations stated during consultation the number of serving judges who would resign; and, if so, what was that number. [HL569]

The Secretary of State for Constitutional Affairs and Lord Chancellor (Lord Falconer of Thoroton)

The responses did not indicate how many serving judges would resign, but did not suggest that it might be a substantial number.
