The first act on behalf of any royal commission is to find a chairman. It was Edward Bridges, Permanent Secretary to the Treasury, who recommended Sir Ernest Gowers “who has had very wide experience and is a person of distinguished mind.”80 Newsam, Ede, and Attlee all agreed. Gowers had been in the public service since 1920, when he became Permanent Undersecretary for Mines, and had chaired inter alia the 1946 Committee on Closing Hours of Shops (with great skill according to Barbara Wootton).81 One of the members of the Royal Commission on Capital Punishment more recently wrote of Gowers’ “gift for assimilating swiftly the central parts of an issue.”82 On 20 January, Attlee announced the setting up of the royal commission, under the chairmanship of Gowers, with the following terms of reference:

To consider and report whether liability under the criminal law in Great Britain to suffer capital punishment for murder should be limited or modified, and, if so, to what extent and by what means, for how long and under what conditions persons who would otherwise have been liable to suffer capital punishment should be detained, and what changes in the existing law and the prison system would be required . . .
