Abstract

The article asks whether the Human Rights Act can be described as a bill of rights. Concluding that the Act is effectively a Bill of Rights, it examines why there are calls to introduce a ‘home-grown’ Bill of Rights and why these proposals have surfaced now. Finally, it asks whether we can assume that such proposals would lead to better human rights protection, or whether it is possible to end up with less than we have now?
