The Government’s Independent Human Rights Act Review

Inquiry

The Government have set up an independent panel to review the operation of the Human Rights Act. 

In this short inquiry, we are seeking views to help inform its response to the independent review and its outcome. We will submit written evidence to the inquiry, but our own inquiry will continue to run alongside the Independent Review. 

Read the call for evidence for more detail about the inquiry.
