The suggestion was made that it was beneath the dignity of the
judges to have this matter submitted to a committee. I think that was the point in the objection taken by the leader of the opposition, and I was quite sincere in questioning that position; I do not think that we ought to allow that contention to go unchallenged.
I notice that we as private members are, not infrequently, solicited by candidates who want to be appointed to judgeships. I do not know whether that is quite in keeping with the high honour of the bench or not.
