Introduction

This consultation welcomes views on the mandatory retirement age (MRA) for devolved judicial office holders in Scotland whose MRA falls within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament.

The consultation asks if the MRA for Scottish judicial offices should be raised, and if so, whether this should be to 72 or 75, and whether the MRA for Scottish judicial offices should maintain parity with the MRA for judicial office holders in the rest of the UK. The consultation also invites views on a proposal that would allow judicial appointments to be extended beyond the MRA, as is currently possible for some offices when it is in the public interest.
