Senior judges refuse to back Ministry of Justice

The eight-member Judicial Executive Board and the 18-strong Judges' Council, which between them represent the judiciary at all levels in England and Wales, reported that "difficult issues remain" to protect the independence of the judiciary and the proper administration of justice. However, they did add that "much progress had been made".
