Joint Committee on Human Rights Written Evidence

32.  Extracts from a letter from the Chairman to Michael Wills MP, Minister of State, Ministry of Justice

  I am writing with a number of points to follow up from correspondence with the Ministry of Justice in the summer and your oral evidence on 26 November 2007.

  When you appeared before the Committee in November you mentioned that the consultation process on a British Bill of Rights would begin early in the new year (Q40). Could you let us know what is being planned? We are still awaiting a Government memorandum for our British Bill of Rights inquiry, which was announced last May. Perhaps you could set out your plans for the consultation process in this memorandum which I would be grateful to receive as soon as possible.
