Re Judicial Review of Abortion Supervisory Committee.
The government has a duty to uphold the rule of law. In the event that the Court of Appeal upholds the judgment of the High Court should your Party be in government at that time it would be appreciated if you would give an assurance that your Party would use its influence to ensure that the Abortion Supervisory Committee complies with the requirements of the judgment of the High Court.
Right to Life is disappointed that the Ministry of Justice has refused a request made by the Society to the Abortion Supervisory Committee under the Official Information Act. The request was to provide the names and qualifications of persons appointed by the Committee to a new Abortion Standards Advisory Committee. The refusal represents a serious threat to our civil liberties. The public have a right in a free society to know who are appointed to government bodies and what their qualifications are.
