Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

It used to be that the Lord Chancellor was responsible for all judicial appointments. Following the Constitutional Reform Act of 2005 though, an independent Judicial Appointments Commission was set up, which oversees all judicial appointments and makes them based on merit. The Prime Minister technically still has final veto over all judicial appointments though.
