To ask the Secretary of State for Justice if he will place copies of responses to “The Governance of Britain” document in the Library. (171185)

“The Governance of Britain” Green Paper was not a consultation document. However, a number of consultations concerning specific proposals within the Green Paper have since been published.

There are three public consultations that are currently continuing ‘Managing Protest Around Parliament’ (CM 7235); ‘War Powers and Treaties: Limiting Executive Powers’ (CM 7239); and ‘Judicial Appointments’ (CM 7210). They will all close on 17 January 2008.

A consultation on ‘Altering the current guidance on flying the Union Flag from UK Government buildings’ closed on 9 November and a consultation on the ‘Role of the Attorney General’ (CM 7192) closed on 30 November.

Responses to all of these consultations will be published in line with Cabinet Office guidelines and copies will be placed in the Libraries of the House.
