Geoffrey Dawson Lane, Baron Lane, Lord Chief Justice Signed 1983 letter

Lane CJ signature

Wiki states "Geoffrey Dawson Lane, Baron Lane, AFC, PC, QC (17 July 1918 - 22 August 2005) was a British Judge who served as Lord Chief Justice of England from 1980 to 1992. The later part of his term was marred by a succession of disputed convictions. Lane's critics claimed that his refusal to believe that police evidence could be institutionally corrupt, and his reluctance to overturn the verdict of a jury, "represented a dangerous hindrance to justice". His failure to allow the appeal of the Birmingham Six in 1988 led to calls for his resignation following their successful appeal in 1991; an editorial in The Times "urged him to go", while 140 MPs signed a House of Commons motion to that effect."
