Dominic Grieve MP, Beaconsfield voted against making it unlawful for any provider of regulated social care to act in a manner incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights.

The majority of MPs voted against making it unlawful for any provider of regulated social care to act in a manner incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights. It was already unlawful for public authorities to act in a manner incompatible with the convention rights.

MPs were considering the Care Bill[1]. The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was:

  • (1) A person (“P”) who provides regulated social care for an individual under arrangements made with P by a public authority, or paid for by a public authority, is to be taken for the purposes of subsection (3)(b) of section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998 (acts of public authorities) to be exercising a function of a public nature in doing so.
  • (2) This section applies to persons providing services regulated by the Care Quality Commission.
  • (3) In this section “social care” has the same meaning as in the Health and Social Care Act 2008.’.
