Request:

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I would like to know why Article 13 'The right to effective remedy' has been omitted from the Human Rights Act on the legislation.gov.uk website.

Outcome:

No information held

Response:

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide legal advice on the interpretation of any legislation available on this website. We would recommend that you contact the department responsible for the piece of legislation you are enquiring about. You may refer to the Explanatory Notes to an Act, the front page of a Statutory Instrument, or the Explanatory Memorandum to a Statutory Instrument for information about the responsible department. Alternately, the Directgov website lists contact details for each government department.

As responsibility for primary legislation may fall across several government departments, we have provided a suggested first point of contact below:

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) monitors human rights, protecting equality across 9 grounds - age, disability, gender, race, religion and belief, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, sexual orientation and gender reassignment.

EHRC is an executive non-departmental public body of the Department for Culture, Media & Sport
