I hope that the Minister will forgive me, but those two sentences were the most wonderful official gobbledegook. It left me completely unable to fathom how a very distinguished Jewish lawyer—who is a member of a very small minority—could be reflective of the community.

all, but he might be the perfect person to be a judge and serve on the commission.
