Coronavirus Act 2020

While it is good news that powers introduced in the Coronavirus Act 2020 are being rolled back, we must ensure the sweeping powers that were introduced under the act are removed from UK law permanently, so they won’t suddenly be reintroduced later on under some other pretext without parliamentary oversight and approval.

While understandable during a pandemic for a very limited period of time, in order to safeguard public health, the powers introduced under the Coronavirus Act completely undermined human rights, democracy, and civil liberties – the very things that define our British democracy and way of life.

We must ensure these Coronavirus powers don’t continue to infect, scar and damage our democracy in the future.
