Joint Committee on Human Rights Legislative Scrutiny

Session 2005-06

Government Bills | Private Bills | Private Members Bills

Archive of reports from previous sessions

A major aspect of the Joint Committee's work is to scrutinise bills passing through Parliament.  The Committee aims to report on the majority of bills before their second reading in the second House.  Thus for a bill which starts in the Commons, the Committee would aim to report in time for the Second Reading debate in the Lords.

Public submissions on the current bills and how to submit evidence can be found in our Press Notice No. 2 dated 20 July 2005.

Below is an alphabetical list of the bills which the Committee has considered so far this session, together with links to any unpublished correspondence the Committee has had with the Minister responsible for the bill and the report(s) produced by the Committee on each bill.

A full list of the Government bills for this session, together with their current progress through both Houses, can be found on the website of the Leader of the House of Commons links.
