The Tories’ ‘Bill of Rights’ will end one of the foundational principles of human rights law


The Bill also sets up future battles with the European Court of Human Rights. The Government yesterday published the text of a new Bill designed to replace the Human Rights Act (1998) which enshrines the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) in UK law.
