The Commission on a UK Bill of Rights has today published a second Consultation Paper.
The Commission is seeking further views from the public on whether or not we need a UK Bill of Rights, and if so, what the form and content of any such Bill might be.
Commenting on the release of the consultation paper, the Chair of the Commission Sir Leigh Lewis said:
‘I am pleased that the Commission has today published this second Consultation Paper, in order that we can seek further views on the issues relating to a UK Bill of Rights. With less than six months until we must make our recommendations we want to hear from as many individuals and interested parties as possible. This Consultation Paper offers a further opportunity for people and organisations to have their say and is part of a wider programme of consultation and engagement by the Commission.’
The deadline for responses is 30 September 2012.
