Report No. 58

Mansfield's view

10.14. It was stated1 Lord Mansfield (though in a different context) that a senior member of the Bar with good practice, when called upon to join the Bench, is in a whimsical situation between tragedy and comedy; inclination drawing one way and imperative call of duty to serve on the Bench the other. It is noteworthy that, over the years, the British Parliament has shown awareness of this problem and has, as already indicated by us,1 increased the salaries of the Judges from time to time.
