Dear House of Commons,

Under The Human Rights Act 1998 how can you discriminate against us the people who refuse a vaccine?

Do you plan to renew the the human rights act to allow discrimination against us the people?

If human rights are a real thing how can the government remove them whenever they feel like it?

Yours faithfully,

Adrian McErlean

Dear Mr McErlean,

 

 

Freedom of Information Request F21-101

 

Thank you for your request for information as copied below. You have asked
the House of Commons three questions about human rights, which we have
sought to answer below.

 

 1. Under The Human Rights Act 1998 how can you discriminate against us
the people who refuse a vaccine?

and

 3. If human rights are a real thing how can the government remove them
whenever they feel like it?

 

This information is not held by the House of Commons.

 

Your questions are about legal interpretation, rather than a request for
information. While we endeavour to be as helpful as possible, the Freedom
of Information Act provides the requester with an access right only to
recorded information. Your request can be in the form of a question, but
the House of Commons does not have to answer your question if this would
mean creating new information, providing analysis or giving an opinion or
judgment that is not already recorded. We therefore suggest that questions
on the law and its interpretation may be best directed to a solicitor,
barrister or other suitably qualified legal professional. Further
information about how the House of Commons fulfils its responsibilities
under the Freedom of Information Act can be found at
[1]http://www.parliament.uk/site-informatio....

 

However, it may interest you to know that the Joint Committee on Human
Rights has undertaken an inquiry into the human rights implications of the
Government’s response to Covid-19. While the information held as part of
their work does not directly address your questions, the reports they have
published include information on the subject in general, which you may
find helpful. This information is available at
[2]https://committees.parliament.uk/work/85....

 

 2. Do you plan to renew the the human rights act to allow discrimination
against us the people?

 

It may help you to know that you have sent your request to the House of
Commons which, together with the House of Lords, makes up Parliament.
While Parliament is responsible for voting on changes to the law, the main
body which has the power to decide which laws are considered to be amended
in the future is the Government. Therefore, information about any plans to
amend human rights legislation will be held by the relevant Government
department. In this case, this is likely to be the Ministry of Justice,
who you can contact using the contact details at
[3]https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati....

 

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the handling of your request, complain to
the House of Commons. Alternatively, if you are dissatisfied with the
outcome of your request you may ask the House of Commons to conduct an
internal review of any decision regarding your request. Complaints or
requests for internal review should be addressed to: Information Rights
and Information Security Service, Research & Information Team, House of
Commons, London SW1A 0AA or [4][House of Commons request email]. Please ensure
that you specify the full reasons for your complaint or internal review
along with any arguments or points that you wish to make.

 

If you remain dissatisfied, you may appeal to the Information Commissioner
at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF,
[5]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Yours sincerely,
