Committee report on Government response to human rights judgements

In October 2008, the Joint Committee on Human Rights published ‘Monitoring the Government’s Response to Human Rights Judgements: Annual Report 2008’.

The report says the Government must do more to comply with court judgments which find breaches of individual rights. The report considers a number of issues including corporal punishment of children; investigations into cases involving the use of lethal force and the total ban on prisoners’ voting.
