Inquiry

Proposal for a draft State Immunity Act 1978 (Remedial) Order

This inquiry will examine the proposed draft Remedial Order.

The Committee is interested to hear views on:

  • Does the proposed remedial Order meet the procedural conditions for making a remedial Order (are there compelling reasons to proceed by way of remedial order)?
  • Does the proposed remedial Order address the legislative incompatibility of sections 4(2)(b) and 16(1)(a) SIA with Article 6 ECHR (including as read with Article 14 ECHR)?
  • Does the drafting of the proposed remedial Order adequately reflect the requirements of international law in respect of immunities?
  • Is the drafting of the proposed remedial Order sufficiently clear?
  • Will UK legislation relating to immunities, in particular the State Immunity Act 1978, the Diplomatic Privileges Act 1964 and the Consular Relations Act 1968 be compatible with Article 6 ECHR (right to a fair trial, including the right to access the courts) once this change is made?
