To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Anelay of St Johns on 22 January (HL4917), whether they have plans to ask the Commonwealth authorities to publish compliance tables in respect of Commonwealth members' adherence to freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of peaceful assembly and association, and freedom of religion or belief in their countries.

We currently have no plans to request the Commonwealth authorities to publish compliance tables in respect of Commonwealth members’ adherence to freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of peaceful assembly and association, and freedom of religion or belief in their countries. My noble Friend may wish to contact the Commonwealth Secretariat directly for more information about their monitoring processes.
