I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way, but I seek clarification about where the Opposition stands on these matters. In earlier debates, Mr. Grieve made it clear that the Conservative party, along with the rest of the House, supports the European convention on human rights. However, Philip Davies said in an earlier intervention that he despises the Human Rights Act 1998, which incorporated the ECHR into UK law. Will the hon. Gentleman clarify where he stands on that issue?
