Angela Crawley – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Justice

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Angela Crawley on 2016-01-20.

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what plans the Government has to seek legislative consent from the Scottish Parliament for the proposed repeal of the Human Rights Act 1998.

Dominic Raab

This Government was elected with a clear mandate to replace the Human Rights Act with a Bill of Rights. We will bring forward proposals for consultation in due course, and will fully engage with the Devolved Administrations.

It would be premature to comment on the application of the Sewell Convention until the package of legislation is settled.
