This new government department (creation was July 03 ) takes on many of the duties formerly carried out by the Lord Chancellor's Department. Headed up by Lord Falconer, he will act as Lord Chancellor albeit on a temporary basis, whilst moving forward the modernisation of the constitution. The link entitled 'constitutional' leads to a discussion of the current proposed reforms including reform of the Office of the Lord Chancellor, a Supreme Court and reform of the House of Lords. Reports and reviews which came under the LCD are also accessible here.
