Human Rights Act consultation inaccessible

03 March 2022

Liberty and a coalition of disability and human rights groups including DR UK, along with opposition parties, have called out the Government for failing to include Disabled people in its Human Rights Act consultation.

The groups said the Government made it ‘virtually impossible’ for some people to respond, after the Government belatedly published an ‘easy read’ version of the document with just 12 days left of the 12-week long consultation process.

 

In a letter sent to Justice Secretary Dominic Raab, the group also states that the content of the ‘easy read’ document – which are normally designed to make the complex 123 page consultation more accessible –  is ‘insufficient to the point of being insulting’. Read more here.
