Raab told leaving ECHR would breach the Good Friday Agreement

At justice department questions today, secretary of state for justice Dominic Raab was questioned over the government’s commitment to the ECHR.

SNP Martin Docherty Hughes asked: “Does the secretary of state recognise the extent to which the ECHR is integrated into [the Good Friday Agreement] and that leaving the convention would be a breach of his Government’s obligations?”

Mr Raab responded: “No one is more committed to the integrity of the UK than this government”.
