UK Government drops plans to scrap the Human Rights Act

The conservative government has dropped plans to scrap the Human Rights Act until after the referendum on Europe in June.

The scrapping of the Human Right Act was one of the key election manifesto of the conversative party during the last general elections.

The intention was to "restore common sense" to human rights enabling foreigners who committed serious crimes to be more easily deported and ending the possibility of claims against the armed forces for actions abroad.

The government has argued that the Human Rights act has prevented the Home Office from removing foreign residents who have committed serious crimes in the UK.
