The Human Rights Act 1998 gives effect to the European Convention on Human Rights1 in United Kingdom law2. The Act provides that it is unlawful for a public authority3 to act in a way which is incompatible with a 'Convention right'4, and defines the 'Convention rights'5 as:
(1) the fundamental rights and freedoms which states parties are required6 to secure to persons within their jurisdiction (other than the right to an effective remedy for a violation of the Convention rights)7;
(2) the additional rights to education, free elections and entitlement to the peaceful enjoyment of possessions
