Home Office Questions: Human Rights

At questions in the House of Commons to Home Office Ministers, I again made the case for reforming human rights laws. I asked the Home Secretary whether the interference of the European Court of Human strengthened the case for modernisation of human rights law so that the UK Supreme Court has the final say.

I have long campaigned for human rights reform. We need a British Bill of Rights to bring our rights home from Europe. British courts should have the final say on our human rights settlement to strike a better balance. It is unacceptable that too often human rights are a charter for criminals and the undeserving.
