Report No. 101

5.4. Recent suggestion made in England.-

It may also be stated, as a matter of information, that a recent English book1, which argues for the enactment of a bill of rights has, in an Appendix, given a draft of a Bill of Rights for England (as suggested by the author) and, of the various clauses of the Bill so suggested, one deals with the freedom of speech and expression. It proposes that the right should be available to all "persons". No distinction has been suggested between natural and artificial persons as such. The relevant clause, as proposed, reads as under:-

"Every person shall have the right to freedom of speech subject to limitations either strictly necessary in public interest or reasonably desirable in the interests of other persons".
