HC Deb 11 March 1998 vol 308 c201W
Ms Walley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to appoint a human rights commissioner; and if he will make a statement. [33341]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

We have no plans at present to appoint a human rights commissioner. Our position on the appointment of a commissioner or the establishment of a commission remains as set out in the White Paper "Rights Brought Home: the Human Rights Bill" (Cm 3782) which we published on 24 October 1997.
