Reviewing human rights in Britain

The government has announced a consultation into proposals to reform the Human Rights Act - delivering on our commitment to restore confidence in the justice system.

  • Restoring confidence in the criminal justice system is vital for delivering justice in the UK.
  • That is why the government has published our consultation into the Human Rights Act – which will include measures to stop the use of certain rights to frustrate the deportation of criminals, will reduce the burden on local authorities and assert the primacy of UK law over the Strasbourg court.
  • Our plans will strengthen typically British rights like freedom of speech and trial by jury, while preventing abuses of the system – delivering justice to victims and British families.
