“Equal rights for people of Northern Ireland (No. 2)

 

(1)    

In the absence of Northern Ireland Ministers to address the matters identified by

 

recent, current and future court proceedings in relation to the human rights of the

 

people of Northern Ireland, the Secretary of State must issue guidance to senior

 

officers of all Northern Ireland departments which will specify how to exercise

 

their functions in relation to—

 

(a)    

the incompatibility of the human rights of the people of Northern Ireland

 

with the continued enforcement of sections 58 and 59 of the Offences

 

against the Person Act 1861 with the Human Rights Act 1998, and

 

(b)    

the incompatibility of the human rights of the people of Northern Ireland

 

with the continued enforcement of section 13(e) of the Matrimonial

 

Causes (Northern Ireland) Order 1978

to the House of Commons and set out her plans to address the impact of the

 

absence of Northern Ireland Ministers on human rights obligations within three

 

months of the day on which this Act is passed.”

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This new clause would increase accountability of the Secretary of State and senior officers of

 

Northern Ireland departments for their role in ensuring human rights compliance in Northern

 

Ireland, in the absence of Northern Ireland Ministers, by requiring them to address

 

incompatibilities between legislation applied in Northern Ireland and human rights obligations.
