Covid19 Legislation and Update (Part 8)

New Joint Committee on Human Rights briefing paper on the changes to the lockdown laws just published.

Raises concerns and makes 3 recommendation

a. Any new regulation or amendments to regulations should announced to Parliament before they are laid.

b. Time should be allowed for debate and a vote held on any amending Regulations as soon as possible given the significant implications for human rights.

c. The Regulations should be amended so as to require a proportionality review every 21 days, as required by the equivalent Welsh regulations, and each review should be published.
