The Lord Chancellor has re-appointed two members of the Administrative Justice and Tribunals Council (AJTC) with the agreement of the Scottish and Welsh Ministers
Bronwyn McKenna and Brian Thompson have been re-appointed from 1 April 2011.
The AJTC is an independent advisory non-departmental public body sponsored by the Ministry of Justice. Its function is to keep under review the administrative justice system as a whole, with a view to making it accessible, fair and efficient. It is one of the bodies proposed for abolition in the Public Bodies Bill, currently before Parliament.
Appointments are normally made for a period of four years, but if the AJTC is wound up within that period, the appointments will come to an end.
