David Lammy – 2020 Comments on the Independent Review of the Human Rights Act

The comments made by David Lammy, the Shadow Secretary of State for Justice, on 7 December 2020.

It is bonkers that the Government is prioritising launching an attack on human rights in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

Unlike the Conservatives, Labour is proud of this country’s leading role in developing human rights following the second world war.

There is no need for a review into the rights and freedoms that underpin our democracy and all of us enjoy.
