Human Rights: Northern Ireland

Volume 692: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the remit provided to the chair of the Bill of Rights Forum includes the intention detailed by the chair in a press statement of 4 April of developing a new international standard in a Bill of Rights for Northern Ireland to reflect the needs and views of all sectors of society. [HL3312]

The Bill of Rights Forum is independent of government and it will be for the forum under the chairmanship of Chris Sidoti to consider exactly how it interprets its remit.
