“While it is important for the Chief Justice to respect the confidentiality and privacy of Mr Justice Woulfe, the correspondence did enclose a cogent medical report to the effect that he is not in a position to take part in the resolution process at this time.
“Accordingly, it was necessary to cancel the meeting.
“The Chief Justice is committed to bringing the process to a conclusion as early as it is possible and appropriate to do so.”
