Evidence of PLP to the JCHR's inquiry into human rights: attitudes to enforcement

PLP welcomes the opportunity to provide evidence to the Joint Committee on Human Rights’ inquiry into factors which may impede individuals from using the UK’s human rights framework effectively. Our submission addresses the question of access to resources and in particular the impact of LASPO on the ability of individuals to access the courts as a means of enforcing their human rights, and focuses in particular on access to immigration advice, including the accessibility of the ECF scheme and the issues posed by advice deserts.
