Fading to Black?: UK Green Paper on Bill of Rights said to be moved to back burner

Filed under: 1 — ruleswatch @ 10:44 am

Update: Frances Gibb, Legal Editor of the Times writes (March 31 on the Times on Line,) “… the Bill is on the back-burner. Listing the reasons why, Professor Robert Hazell, of the Constitution Unit, noted that the recession now took priority; the Cabinet remained split over it; Scotland was opposed; it would need widespread consultation; and finally the Government had run out of time.”

“Put simply,” Gibb says, “it ain’t going to happen.”

Gibbs’ piece is under the title, “Actually, the public do trust lawyers . . .” — Something most assuredly, another story.
