Volume 710: debated on Monday 18 May 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have made representations to other countries that impose Sharia law within their borders about its effect on human rights. [HL3473]

The Government have not made representations to any country on the compatibility of Sharia with human rights law. However, the UK makes frequent representations to countries that violate human rights law whatever legal system they have.
