On 22nd June 2022, the Government published a new Bill that would get rid of our Human Rights Act. They’re calling it the Bill of Rights – but it’s exactly the opposite. This is a Rights Removal Bill and represents the latest step in plans to reduce their responsibilities to uphold the human rights protections people rely on every day across the UK.

We need you to continue raising awareness of the risks to our human rights from this Bill. Help us stand up for our human rights!

One way you can do this is to write to your MP to raise your concerns with the Rights Removal Bill. BIHR has identified key concerns with the Bill, which you can read about in detail here. We’ve created two template letters that address the key concerns; a one-page template which briefly outlines key concerns, and a two-page template that goes into the concerns in more detail. You are able to customise these letters, adding additional questions on issues you’re most concerned about, and send it to your MP.

We have created forms which you can fill in, and have your completed template letter emailed to you. Find the links for these here:

                   

Or access these as downloadable Word documents here.


Before the Rights Removal Bill was published, BIHR created multiple template letters on our concerns to write to your MP, which can be found here.
