BIHR is not the only organisation which has concerns about the Government's plans to reform the Human Rights Act. You can read our response to the consultation here. On this page, we are sharing responses from individuals and other groups and organisations.

We are also sharing resources from other organisations to help you respond to the consultation. This is for people who have the extended deadline of 19 April. You can read more about this update here.

Please note, these are external responses and views expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of BIHR. We are sharing to increase transparency around the consultation to reform the Human Rights Act.
