The Commission on a UK Bill of Rights is presently consulting upon introducing an environmental right as a constitutional right. An environmental right is different from the existing European Convention rights. Rights to life, home, property, freedom of religion and freedom of expression are about freedom from state interference in an individual's own life. An environmental right is at least partly about giving an individual a right to a general public benefit. Responses to the consultation are to be submitted by 30 September 2012.
by 24 September if you wish to provide comments.
