Bill Cash @ ConservativeHome'Platform: "The Conservative manifesto, on which all Conservative MPs campaigned at the General Election in 2010, stated:

“To protect our freedoms from state encroachment and encourage greater social responsibility, we will replace the Human Rights Act with a UK Bill of Rights.”

It is reported that Nick Clegg has reversed this: I am informed that the Human Rights Act will not be repealed and there will be no proper reform of our position towards the European Convention on Human Rights. When I was Shadow Attorney-General, I recommended, and my party accepted, that we repeal the Human Rights Act. It should not be up to judges to decide on crucial matters in our national interest."
