Human Rights

Volume 711: debated on Thursday 4 June 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord Malloch-Brown on 20 April (WA 348), why they do not maintain a list of the names and types of cases where the United Kingdom has requested a referral to the European Court of Human Rights Grand Chamber; and what would be the cost of maintaining such details. [HL3679]

It is not the general practice of the Government routinely to keep statistical information in relation to cases before the European Court of Human Rights, including cases before the Grand Chamber. As there are no plans to maintain such statistics, no assessment has been made of possible costs.
