JCHR supports a UK Bill of Rights

The Joint Committee of Human Rights has supported the government proposals for a Bill of Rights. Among its various recommendations it argues for the terminology UK Bill of Rights rather than British. It also believes that devolved governments need to be given an enhanced role in the process and supports the inclusion of some socio-economic rights. UPDATE: Whatever JCHR thinks Brown has returned to the theme of Britishness at the Edinburgh Book festival.
