THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE

is the responsibility of no one. In one aspect of legal administration the authority may be the Lord Chancellor, in another it may be the Home Secretary, the Attorney-General, or even the Prime Minister. But the Lord Chancellor is not answerable in Parliament, having no representative in the House of Commons. And several departments, some of them of considerable importance, are without ministerial or Parliamentary supervision. There is, for instance, despite its Parliamentary member, the Charity Commission, to which appointments are by patronage, and which was severely criticised by the last Royal Commission on the Civil Service. Or there are the Masters in the King's Bench and Chancery Divisions, the former being appointed by the Master of the Rolls and the Lord Chief justice in rotation on a system of patronage descended from the eighteenth century, which was revealed in 1915 to have produced a situation in which seven out of the nine holders of these positions worth up to 1.500 pounds a year were near relatives of judges. It is interesting further evidence of the strength and conservatism of the legal profession that a Ministry of Justice, so clearly needed and so strongly advocated for more than a century, should not yet have been created. Lord Brougham at the beginning and Lord Haldane at the end of that period both actively demanded this reform. Lord Bryce approved it. It was supported by some of the Commissioners who were responsible for the Judicature Act. Both the Commission on Legal Departments in its majority report of 1874 and the Machinery of Government Committee of 1917-18 favoured its creation. Such a Ministry is needed first to clean up the chaos of unco-ordinated departments and uncontrolled offices.
