The UK Government’s so-called Bill of Rights is in reality a “rights removal bill”, Scottish Greens human rights spokesperson Maggie Chapman said today.

Speaking at FMQs, the North East Scotland MSP said that independence is required to build a fairer and more equal Scotland.

Maggie Chapman MSP said:

“Yesterday, in the commons, the Deputy Prime Minister laid out his plans for a so-called British Bill of Rights.

“In reality this is a rights removal bill. It would rip the ECHR from domestic law and re-write the Scotland Act. In their place, we are supposed to rely on Mr Raab’s “common sense”.

“It becomes clearer every day that only by becoming independent can we build a fairer and more equal Scotland.”
