Chris Grayling sworn in as Lord Chancellor

 

Today Justice Secretary Chris Grayling was sworn in as Lord Chancellor of Great Britain. The ceremony was held at the Royal Courts of Justice and marks the beginning of the legal year.

 

A procession of judges led the ceremony, arriving at Westminster Abbey from the Supreme Court and the Royal Courts of Justice in The Strand for a private religious service, followed by the Lord Chancellor's breakfast in Westminster Hall. The Lord Chancellor wore formal dress, alongside Judges and QC’s who were dressed in ceremonial robes.

 

Chris Grayling said what a 'great privilege and honour' it was to take part in the ceremony and begin his role as Lord Chancellor.

 

Around 1,000 people attended the 45-minute service that was conducted by the Dean of Westminster, and included Oliver Heald being sworn in as Solicitor General.
