This consultation seeks views on the arrangements for making judicial appointments, and in particular on whether the residual role of the executive in judicial appointments should be further reduced. This consultation follows on from 'The Governance of Britain' green paper.
The Prime Minister and Secretary of State announced the next steps for the constitutional reform programme on 25 March 2008, with a White Paper and a Draft Constitutional Renewal Bill.
The white paper and draft bill took into account responses to consultations on war powers and treaties, the role of the Attorney General, judicial appointments, the Civil Service, flag flying and managing protest around Parliament.
