To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether he is yet in a position to respond to the second report of the Standing Advisory Commission on Human Rights "Religious and Political Discrimination and Equality of Opportunity in Northern Ireland" (Cm 1107); and if he will make a statement.

I have today written to the chairman of the commission responding to its second report. A copy of my letter has been placed in the Library of the House.I welcomed the report when it was laid before Parliament and published in June 1990. It is a valuable report which, as I made clear at that time, has required careful study by the Government. The Government will continue to examine the recommendations in consultation with the commission and other interested parties.
