Whereas the United Kingdom has withdrawn its derogation, designated by the Human Rights Act 1998 (Designated Derogation) Order 2001(1), from Article 5(1) of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, agreed by the Council of Europe at Rome on 4th November 1950;
Now, therefore, the Secretary of State, in exercise of the powers conferred upon him by section 16(7) of the Human Rights Act 1998(2) hereby makes the following Order:
1998 c. 42. Section 16(7) was amended by article 8 of, and paragraph 7 of Schedule 2 to, the Transfer of Functions (Miscellaneous) Order 2001, S.I. 2001/3500, to reflect the transfer of the relevant functions of the Secretary of State to the Lord Chancellor made by article 3 of, and paragraph 5 of Schedule 1 to, that Order.
