					RESPONSE FROM GREG BARKER

In response to the four questions on which you are seeking views:

   1. No we do not need a UK bill of rights. We already have a modern bill of rights
      in this country which is called the Human Rights Act. Given that the
      conservative party gave a manifesto commitment in 2010 to scrap the Human
      Rights Act, I am concerned that the proposed bill of rights would be a watered
      down facsimile, affording ordinary vulnerable people less protection under the
      law. I understand that this is also the the the view held by civil liberties
      organisations, such as Liberty and great legal minds such as the late Rt Hon
      Lord Bingham of Cornhill, former Master of the Rolls, Lord Chief Justice and
      Senior Law lord.


As I am not in favour of the introduction of this bill, I will not be answering questions
2, 3 & 4.

Yours faithfully

Greg Barker
