To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, if he will publish a human rights explanatory memorandum with the legislative proposals relating to legacy investigations.
The recognition and protection of rights are fundamental values of the UK. Our human rights framework offers comprehensive, well-established, and effective protections within a clear constitutional and legal system.

Explanatory notes and a statement as to the Bill’s compatibility with the ECHR will be published on introduction of the Bill.
