Resource description

Reports on a survey analysing the impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 on cases heard by the House of Lords between 1994 and 2007. Outlines the background to the research, the methodology adopted and the main findings on whether the House showed a greater willingness after the Act's commencement to grant leave to appeal in cases raising human rights issues, the number of cases in which human rights arguments were advanced, the success rate of such arguments and the human rights questions raised in devolution cases before the Privy Council.
