Public consultation process
Please scrutinise all the proposed amendments and replies before commenting or voting. Short comments are most often read and must not exceed 100 words.You can propose an Amendment at the bottom of this page - please read the guidelines .
Note that the original wording appears again first below and sustains the same comment & voting regime as all other amendment proposals.
Section 2.6. All citizens have the right to liberty, other than by lawful arrest and detention.
This merely reproduces Article 5 of the ECHR, with much less detail. Since the ECHR is incorporated into the constitution, why repeat this?
Caledonian - your comment will stand here for some time and at the end of the day, once all the Proposals are voted and we move towards a final draft this will doubtless be attended to. Thank you.
