Murray Hunt at the House of Lords EU Justice Committee in its inquiry into Rights after Brexit
Murray Hunt appeared before the House of Lords EU Justice Committee in its inquiry into Rights after Brexit.
The Committee is examining the future framework for and potential risks to rights after Brexit. My evidence focused on the risk of compounding the legal uncertainty already caused by Brexit by unnecessarily sowing seeds of doubt about the future of the Human Rights Act. I contrasted this with the post-Brexit human rights leadership being demonstrated in Scotland and by the Foreign Secretary's recent speeches calling on democracies with shared values to be more proactive in defending the rules-based international system.
