The Government is committed to the European Convention of Human Rights and to protecting human rights and championing them at home and abroad. The Government is also firmly committed to the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement, its successor agreements, the constitutional principles it upholds, the institutions it established, and the rights it protects; leaving the EU does not change this position.
