Foreword from the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales and the Senior President of Tribunals
An independent, efficient and effective judiciary is central to ensuring the fair and impartial delivery of justice. The support provided by the Judicial Office enables the judiciary, in courts and tribunals, to contribute successfully in the ever-changing environment in which we operate.
We welcome the 2012-13 Business Plan for the Judicial Office and congratulate Anne Sharp and her staff on the manner in which they have handled complex changes over the last year and their effective planning for the year ahead which, in turn, will not be without its own demands and challenges.
The contribution made by staff across the Judicial Office is recognised and valued by us and our colleagues and we look forward to working together with the Judicial Office in the coming year.
Igor Judge and Robert Carnwath
