HC Deb 27 January 1997 vol 289 c106W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what representations he has received in respect of the consistency of the Social Security Administration (Fraud) Bill with United Kingdom obligations under the European convention on human rights; and if he will make a statement. [11192]

Mr. Heald

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State has received no such representations. However, departmental officials met Liberty on 4 December when these issues were discussed. I am satisfied that the proposals in the Bill comply with European convention on human rights requirements.
