The Bill of Rights – a guide to a fundamentally flawed piece of legislation

The Government proposes to repeal the Human Rights Act and replace it with a Bill of Rights. If this happens, rights protection in this country will be considerably weaker. 

The Bill of Rights is a badly flawed piece of legislation that delivers nothing for service personnel, veterans or their families.

In this short briefing we focus upon some of the key provisions that we think are most likely to affect the armed forces and we provide examples of how the Human Rights Act has been vital for service personnel and their families. 

We also encourage readers to look at our Military Human Rights stories that have been written by service personnel, veterans or their bereaved families, explaining how the Human Rights Act was the only tool at their disposal to ensure accountability or justice.
