Bill of Rights

A Bill of Rights is to be introduced to Parliament which will repeal and replace the Human Rights Act 1998. When enacted it should ensure that  the UK Supreme Court, and not the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, determines the meaning of the Convention on Human Rights, for the purposes of domestic law.

Among other changes, UK tribunals and courts will no longer be required to interpret UK domestic legislation in a way that is compatible with Convention rights (as currently required under Section 3 of the Human Rights Act) and that decisions and subsequent case law made by the Strasbourg court will not have to be followed by UK courts.
