Discusses the existence of a bill of the rights in the UK in light of suggestions by persons such as the Conservative Party leader that one needs to be introduced. Considers: (1) whether the Human Rights Act 1998 constitutes a bill of rights, with reference to its political background, legal and constitutional issues, the protection of significant rights, whether the Act binds the Executive, and whether the act provides redress for human rights violations; (2) reasons why there are calls for a new British bill of rights; and (3) whether a new British-style bill of rights would result in a less efficient means of human rights protection.
