Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill [Lords] — Clause 5 — Removal Or Suspension From Listed Judicial Offices — 26 Apr 2004 at 18:30

I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 3, line 25, leave out clause 5.

The amendment would preserve the status quo, which requires the Lord Chief Justice's agreement to be sought and obtained before the sacking or suspension of any judge, as set out in the Justice (Northern Ireland) Act 2002. In the other place, clause 5 proved to be the most controversial clause. It was removed, but it was reinstated in Committee in this House.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 151, Noes 266.
