42 Days

Asked if the Government had a response to the report by the Commission on Human Rights, the PMS said that we had always said that we believed the legislation we were proposing on 42 days was compatible with the European Court of Human Rights, but he had not seen the report mentioned.

Asked if the Government was confident of winning the vote on 42 days, the PMS said that the position was pretty much as it was yesterday. The Prime Minister and the Home Secretary were very confident in the strength of their arguments, but suggestions that the votes were already in and that the vote had already been won were wide of the mark.
