  • Attend and take an active role in Committee meetings; members will be expected to commit to attending approximately nine committee meetings per year, lasting three to four hours. However, the frequency of meetings can vary according to the need to accommodate the priorities of the work coming before the Committee;

  • Respond appropriately to complaints if necessary with reference to the MoJ;
  • Ensure that the Committee does not exceed its powers or functions.

Communications between the Committee and the Lord Chancellor will generally be through the Chair.
