Dear Ron,

 

Not an answer but I note that the A-G's office (at
https://www.gov.uk/government/ministers/solicitor-general) says:

 

"The Solicitor General supports the Attorney across the range of his
responsibilities. This includes:

 

- deputising for the Attorney General and being responsible for such
matters as the Attorney General delegates to him

- providing support to the Attorney General in his superintendence of the
Government Legal Department, the Crown Prosecution Service, the Service
Prosecuting Authority, HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate and the
Serious Fraud Office

- providing support to the Attorney General on civil litigation and advice
on civil law matters and on the public interest function."

 

I don't know but perhaps that suggests that the office would be defined
where the A-G is defined.

 

With kind regards, 

Geoffrey Hartwell

Subject: [Int-Law] Solicitor-General for England and Wales

 

I posted this question last week, but have not as yet had any replies. Is
the position of Solicitor-General for England And Wales a statutory office
? If so, what is the relevant UK Act governing the appointment and duties
of the Solicitor-General ? Many thanks in advance.
