Engaging with the coalition
Civil Liberties, the Constitution and Cuts: Engaging with the coalition is a JUSTICE briefing paper in three parts:
- First, it lists and responds to the commitments relevant to civil liberties made by the coalition in its Programme for Government. The intention is to provide an overview of what is undoubtedly an impressive project
- Second, it sets out the considerations that we think should underlie any UK-wide bill of rights which sought to replace or supplement the Human Rights Act
- Third, it opens a discussion on how cuts to legal aid might be approached
This paper was published in advance of a public meeting at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer on 25 October 2010.
