Publishing a “5 point plan” on how Britain’s status as a “world leader on equality and human rights” can be maintained and strengthened after we leave the European Union, David Isaac, chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission has called for the government to set out its vision for a fairer Britain after Brexit and to demonstrate how it will take a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a shared society and heal the divisions exposed during and since the referendum campaign.
The 5 point plan titled ‘Healing the divisions: A positive vision for equality and human rights in Britain’ covers:
- protecting parliamentary sovereignty over the UK’s equality and human rights legal framework
- retaining the UK’s equality and human rights legal framework as we leave the European Union
- ensuring the UK is a global leader on equality and human rights
- protecting the UK’s equality and human rights infrastructure
- promoting the UK as an open and fair place to live and do business
