Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights Stakeholder Consultation

The Northern Ireland Assembly’s Ad Hoc Committee on a Bill of Rights recently held a call for evidence. Members of the Committee were delighted to receive over 2,400 responses through written submissions and survey responses and the Committee is very grateful to everyone who took the time to provide their views.

The next stage of the process was to capture more in-depth feedback on this topic. To ensure that the Committee heard from a diverse range of voices, a series of stakeholder events took place between March - May 2021.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, these stakeholder events were delivered via virtual platforms.
