LAW
Asked by Tasnim

How does Human Rights Act have significance in the U.K law?

The HRA 1998 has a lot of significance in English law. It is essentially what protects us and allows us the freedoms that are in line with a democratic country such as ‘freedom of religious expression’ and the right to a private life. Currently the HRA is in line with the European Convention of Human rights (ECHR) and we as citizens have human rights under both acts. There is a lot of concern that leaving the EU could mean our HRA is scrapped in favour of what has been called ‘The British Bill of Rights’ which was first proposed by David Cameron’s Tory government. This is concerning as it means we will no longer have the ECHR to rely on if our human rights are breached. It is possibly one of the most important acts in our legislation and covers a wide area of law from employment, medical, contract and tort.
