§ Lord Avebury
asked Her Majesty's Government:
On what date in 1997 the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture visited the United Kingdom; when they propose to publish the report of that visit; why it has not already been published; and when the Government's reply will be published. [HL93]
§ Lord Bassam of Brighton
The committee visited the United Kingdom in September 1997. We received the Committee's report in April 1998 and forwarded a response in October 1998. Publication of the report is a matter for the committee.
