Human Rights Act Reform


The Government has launched a three-month consultation to reform the Human Rights Act 1998.

The consultation seeks views on the Government’s proposals to revise the Human Rights Act and replace it with a Bill of Rights.

It follows a report from the Independent Human Rights Act Review Panel which examined how the Human Rights Act is working after 21 years in operation.

This Report contains the Committee’s views on the topics which were the focus of that Independent Review.

The Committee will respond to the Government proposals which form the basis of its consultation.
