Improving Compliance with the Convention Rights

Improving Compliance with the Convention Rights

3.1 The enforcement of Convention rights will be a matter for the courts, whilst the Government and Parliament will have the different but equally important responsibility of revising legislation where necessary. But it is also highly desirable for the Government to ensure as far as possible that legislation which it places before Parliament in the normal way is compatible with the Convention rights, and for Parliament to ensure that the human rights implications of legislation are subject to proper consideration before the legislation is enacted.

Comment: What a pity Mr Justice Langstaff did not read the highlighted text before he abdicated responsibility in the Prisoners Votes Compensation Case.
