A 'declaration of incompatibility' is a declaration by a court that a provision of primary legislation, or a provision of subordinate legislation made in the exercise of a power conferred by primary legislation1, is incompatible with a Convention right2.

(1) in the case of primary legislation, that the provision is incompatible with a Convention right5; or
(2) in the case of subordinate legislation made
