Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill — New Clause 1 — Human Rights Abuses — 7 Jun 2021 at 20:15

The majority of MPs voted not to explicitly prohibit Advanced Research and Invention Agency resources from being used in any way that would contravene human rights.

MPs were considering the Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill[1][2][3]

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Human Rights Abuses and stated:

  • No ARIA resources may be used in any way that would contravene human rights.”

The rejected new clause was accompanied by the following explanatory statement:

  • This new clause is intended to ensure that ARIA is not able to contravene human rights.

The Human Rights Act 1998[4] already prohibited public bodies from breaching those rights protected by that Act.
