HC Deb 15 February 2001 vol 363 c230W
Mr. Reed

To ask the President of the Council what representations she has received from the Government of Bermuda about proposed constitutional changes; and if she will make a statement. [149996]

Mr. Battle

I have been asked to reply.

In December 2000, HMG received a list of proposed constitutional changes from the Government of Bermuda, through the Governor's Office. These, and suggestions for amendments to the constitution from other sources, are under consideration. HMG takes their responsibility to the people of Bermuda seriously and will not agree to changes to the constitution without due deliberation.
