Judicial Pensions and Retirement Act 1993


Judicial Pensions and Retirement Act 1993

The Judicial Pensions and Retirement Act 1993 is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom that strengthened the mandatory retirement provisions previously instituted by the Judicial Pensions Act 1959 for members of the British judiciary.

While the 1959 Act forbade service past age 75 by any judges appointed thereafter (Lord Denning being the last exempt jurist) the 1993 Act made the ordinary retiring age 70, and while permitting judges to be allowed by a minister (presumably the Lord Chancellor) to remain in office until 75, expressly forbids persons aged over 75 to hold any judicial post whatsoever. An exception is the post of Lord Chancellor, a political appointee.
