Lord Lester of Herne Hill

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether any previous United Kingdom government failed to sign an additional protocol to the European Convention on Human Rights. [HL3981]

Yes. Previous governments did not sign or ratify Protocols 6, 7 and 9 and signed but did not ratify Protocol 4. The present Government signed and ratified Protocol 6 last year.
