The not so transparent UK on Europe!

The not so transparent UK on Europe!

At the 6th WORKING MEETING OF THE CDDH INFORMAL WORKING GROUP ON THE ACCESSION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION TO THE EUROPEAN CONVENTION ON HUMAN RIGHTS (CDDH-UE) WITH THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION the UK was represented by Mr Rob LINHAM, Head of Litigation, Legislation and European Institutions, Human Rights Division, Ministry of Justice, London.

Why am I discovering that this department within the MoJ exists via the Council of Europe website and not via the MoJ website? So much for transparency in the Coalition Government!

Given that this is such an important issue in relations between Europe and the UK, why wasn't the UK represented instead by the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary, William Hague, or the Secretary of State for Justice, Kenneth Clarke, or the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve?
