§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will undertake to compensate victims of breaches of convention rights by public authorities acting for the Crown during the period between the enactment of the Human Rights Act 1998 and its being brought into force by the Secretary of State: and, if not, why not. [HL1968]
§ Lord Williams of Mostyn
Compensation is paid in accordance with our legal obligations. Claims forexgratia payments are considered on their individual merits, taking into account Treasury guidance.
