Retrospective legislation that interfered with judicial ruling violated the Convention and the rule of law – UK Human Rights Blog

Posted July 9th, 2014 in human rights, judgments, legislation, news, retrospectivity by sally

The regulations under the Act that sanctioned those who did not participate in unpaid “work for your benefit” schemes by depriving them of an allowance violated the rule of law protected by the Convention and this country’s unwritten constitution. However, the dispute did not engage Article 1 of the First Protocol to the ECHR.’
