§ Mr. Burnett
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what mechanisms he plans to establish for consultation on the incorporation of the European convention on human rights into(a) English and Welsh law, (b) Scots law and (c) Northern Irish law. 
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
We published a consultation document on incorporation—"Bringing Rights Home"—in December 1996. We are now developing proposals for legislation in the light of the responses to that document and further discussions we have had since then. We will announce our conclusions in a White Paper later this year and are happy to consider any representations made in response to it.
§ Mr. Baldry
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the Government's proposals to incorporate the European convention on human rights into domestic law.
