Justice Secretary Dominic Raab told the Conservative Party Conference last month Boris Johnson had given him the task of rewriting the The Human Righrs Act when he moved him from the Foreign Office in September’s reshuffle. This week Raab revealed details on how he plans to block interference from Strasbourg in British matters as part of his remit.
During an interview with the Sunday Telegraph, Mr Raab said soldiers and UK institutions such as the police and health service should not be “dictated to” by judges in Europe. He also repeated a point made in his conference speech in Manchester about the Act being used by criminals to prevent their deportation.
The former Foreign Secretary, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister and Lord Chancellor, warned of “serious issue” as the law stands, with foreign criminals using the Act’s “right to family life” clause as a loophole to avoid deprtation in “somewhere between 100 and 200 cases a year”.
The shake up of the Human Rights Act is likely to be presented to Parliament in the spring, with changes to the judicial review process possibly being considered sooner.
Mr Raab used the Telegraph interview to slam EU meddling in UK affairs, saying it was wrong that judges in Strasbourg ruled on matters relating to British soldiers fighting overseas, telling the newspaper he was studying how to end the European Court of Justice’s influence in the UK.
“I don’t think it’s the job of the European Court in Strasburg to be dictating things to, whether it’s the NHS, whether it’s our welfare provision, or whether it’s our police forces,” the Lord Chancellor said.
“We want the Supreme Court to have a last word on interpreting the laws of the land, not the Strasbourg court.”
As part of his judicial review proposals, Mr Raab said he wanted to change the current system, which he said left the door open to lengthy and expensive legal challenges which were being used to “harpoon” major Government infrastructure projects and slowing down development.
