Counter Terrorism Bill, House of Lords Second Reading

January 2015

This briefing provides the Commission’s analysis of the implications for equality and human rights law of measures contained in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill. In practice, compliance with equality and human rights law will depend on methods of implementation of the measures in the Bill and of associated regulations, orders, rules, policies and guidance (still to be devised).  This analysis highlights areas of potential risk, identifying where the proposed measures could be incompatible with the Equality Act 2010, the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) or and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).
