The Brighton declaration of the European Human Rights

David Simmons is the Conservative MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner and on Wednesday he was participating in a debate called the “New Clause 17 – Serious Harm Suspensive Claims: Interpretation” for the Illegal Migration Bill and one of his comments is here that focuses on the Brighton declaration for European Union. It is very interesting to find out why he is focusing on our City?

The second issue of principle to which I would like to draw the House’s attention is the impact of the so-called rule 39 point—the interim relief provided by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. The Brighton declaration some years ago was a recognition by the European Court of Human Rights of the concerns of a number of member states about areas where the actions of the Court had departed from some of the things perhaps originally envisaged in the treaty or specifically enshrined in law. Therefore, there is clarity that the Strasbourg Court and its judges recognise that there is concern about the operation of some of these matters.
