EHRC Briefing - European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, House of Lords, Report stage

Posted On: 
23rd April 2018

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has produced the second in a series of briefings for House of Lords Report Stage of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill. 

This covers amendments to: 

 

  •  retain the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights (Amendment 15) 
  •  clarify the status of future decisions of the Court of Justice of the EU (Amendments 21, 23, 24, and 25) 
  •  ensure non-regression of equality rights (Amendment 30A) 

This briefing sets out our analysis of the steps that need to be taken to ensure the EU (Withdrawal) Bill fully delivers the Government’s commitment to non-regression of equality and human rights protections, in a way that guards against the excessive transfer of power from Parliament to the Executive.
