The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission (NIHRC) responds to the Bill of Rights Bill published today.

Chief Commissioner Alyson Kilpatrick stated:

The Commission is reviewing the Bill of Rights Bill. We are seeking assurances from government that there will be no detrimental impact on NIHRC's powers and functions.

Any attempt to reform the Human Rights Act, which has the result of weakening the enforceability of rights in Northern Ireland, will be opposed.”
