I do not believe it would be particularly helpful to lay down strict time limits. The object of the exercise, under the explanatory memorandum and the Long Title of the Bill, is that this is a mode or method of appointing judges. The commission will act in accordance with the importance and the urgency of the matter. The laying down by us of time limits could prove to be counterproductive.
