An independent commission has started to seek views from the public on the need for a UK Bill of Rights.

The Commission on a UK Bill of Rights was set up by the government in March to explore a range of issues around human rights law.

It came amid a row over a 2005 European Court of Human Rights' ruling that the UK was unlawfully operating a blanket ban preventing prisoners from voting.

MPs voted overwhelmingly to defy the ruling and maintain the ban.

The free vote took place in parliament in February.

Prime Minister David Cameron famously said that the prospect of lifting the ban made him feel "physically ill".

The controversy was one of many in which the application of human rights law infuriated parts of the press and the country.
