HC Deb 18 May 1982 vol 24 c57W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Attorney-General if he will list all those cases where the European Court of Human Rights has ruled against Her Majesty's Government; and what are the comparable figures for other members of the Council of Europe.

The Attorney-General

Responsibility for the conduct of cases before the court and also for obtaining information concerning proceedings involving other members of the Council of Europe rests with the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary. I am asking the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to collect the information and let me have it. Because of the need to consult our mission in Strasbourg and perhaps our embassies in other capitals, this may take a little time, but I shall reply further when the information is available.
