MPs debate whether UK should have a Bill of Rights

26 June 2009

Andrew Dismore, Labour MP for Hendon, opened a debate in Westminster Hall on whether the UK should have a bill of rights. MPs were discussing a report from the Joint Committee on Human Rights - of which Mr Dismore is Chairman - and the Government’s response

Westminster Hall adjournment debates allow MPs to consider issues of local or personal interest which rarely have time to be debated in the main Chamber of the House of Commons. They enable MPs to discuss a variety of issues and to receive a response from a government Minister.
