David Lammy – 2020 Comments on Reports Government are Abandoning Commitment to Human Rights Laws

The comments made by David Lammy, the Shadow Justice Secretary, on 13 September 2020.

Labour is proud of our country’s role in developing human rights at home and abroad.

Instead of giving unattributed briefings designed to distract the government should focus on getting a Brexit deal and defeating the virus.

Any attempt to abandon human rights would make life in Britain less secure and hold our country back on the world stage.
