To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many unimplemented judgements of the European Court of Human Rights there have been in each member state of the Council of Europe in each of the last 10 years.

Under Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe is responsible for supervising the execution (or implementation) of a final judgment of the European Court of Human Rights.

The information requested is not available for years before 2007, but since then the Committee of Ministers has published an annual report on its supervision of execution of judgments, which provides figures for the number of judgments against each state party to the Convention that remain unimplemented at the end of the year. The annual reports can be found at:

http://www.coe.int/t/dghl/monitoring/execution/Documents/Publications_en.asp

In view of the amount of information requested I will write to the honourable Member and arrange for copies to be placed in the libraries of both Houses.
