Commission on a Bill of Rights: second consultation paper

On 11 July 2012, the Commssion on a Bill of Rights published its second consultation paper.

The Commission was established by the UK Government in March 2011 primarily to investigate the creation of a UK Bill of Rights.

With less than six months to go until it must report, the Commission has decided to publish a second consultation paper as a further opportunity to solicit views on a number of the key issues covered by its terms of reference.

The Commission states that ‘if you responded to our first consultation last summer or have otherwise already conveyed your views to us, you do not need to repeat what you have already said which we have already taken very carefully into account’.

The deadline for responding to the consultation paper was 30 September 2012.
