The Justice Secretary, Dominic Raab, recently announced that the government would re-introduce its legislation to repeal the Human Rights Act “in the coming weeks”.
This reverses Liz Truss’s decision to shelve plans to replace the Human Rights Act with a British Bill of Rights, now widely called the #RightsRemovalBill.

*** TAKE ACTION TO SAVE OUR HUMAN RIGHTS ACT! ***
The Human Rights Act is under threat. The government wants to replace it with a weaker Bill of Rights.
We are asking for your support for our campaign to save the Human Rights Act.
The Bill of Rights will reduce our basic rights including to freedom of religion.
So we are asking MPs to vote against the Bill of Rights. René Cassin’s briefing provides more details.
Please let us know when you have taken this action, and of any response from your MP
Thank you for supporting this campaign!
