Britain to table new legislation days after judges blocked PM’s migrant plan in Rwanda

BRITAIN is set to present a new Bill of Rights within days after Euro-judges blocked the Prime Minister’s plan to send migrants to Rwanda.

The bills could be tabled in Parliament as early as next week.

Justice Secretary Dominic Raab announced the powers will allow Britain to pick and shuffle parts of the European Convention on Human Rights – without abandoning it entirely.

It would mean Britain could ignore the types of restraining orders used this week to halt the first migrant flight to Kigali, Rwanda.

Mr Raab said: “I do not think it is right in this case or in general for the Strasbourg court to assume an injunction and then apply it.”

A secret Strasbourg judge canceled the flight on Tuesday night after only reading papers on the case.

British officials were unable to retaliate with their own submissions before the decision was made.

Mr Raab pointed out that similar sloppy judgments could be ignored in the future.

He said the orders were “based on the rules and procedures” and not on conventions that Britain is a party to.

He added: “I certainly believe that they should not have legally binding effect under UK law.” He said the decision strengthened the case for reform of human rights law.

Asked whether the UK could just ignore the European Court of Justice’s ruling, Mr Raab said: “Not under human rights law, but we will address this head on with the Bill of Rights.

“We will stay within the convention but make sure the procedural framework is reformed.”

Only five out of 4,550 deportees

LESS than five Canal migrants were denied asylum and deported in the first three months of 2022.

Home Office data shows that 0.1 percent of the 4,550 who crossed the border as of March 31 were denied sanctuary.

The figures came as it emerged Britain would not schedule another flight to Rwanda ahead of a judicial review next month.

Yesterday another 233 migrants arrived – with children of primary school age in a group of about 30 landing in Dover, Kent.

Local Tory MP Natalie Elphicke said: “Crossing the Channel is putting lives at risk.
“The actions taken by our government to end these dangerous crossings are compassionate and right.”
