I move amendment No. 87b:

In page 29, between lines 8 and 9, to insert the following:“Provision of information to applicants

42. In every case where the Commission makes any recommendation to the Government in accordance with the provisions of this chapter, the Commission shall inform each of the persons applying to the Commission in respect of the judicial appointment in question —
(a) whether the person was or was not among those persons recommended by the Commission to the Government in respect of that appointment, and

(b) whether, if it were the case, the Commission considered that the person was not eligible for appointment by reason of the requirements of section 35,
and in any case where the Commission cannot make any recommendation the Commission shall notify all persons who applied to the Commission in respect of that appointment that it made no recommendation.".
