Labour Manifesto, Brexit and Human Rights


Regarding Brexit and human rights, the UK’s Labour Party has promised the following in its 2017 General Election Manifesto:

  • “We will introduce legislation to ensure there are no gaps in national security and criminal justice arrangements as a result of Brexit.”
  • “Labour recognises the vital role that cross-border agencies such as Eurojust and Europol have played in making Britain safer and that European Arrest Warrants have been invaluable. A Labour government will seek to retain membership of these agencies and continue European Arrest Warrant arrangements.”
  • “Labour will build human rights and social justice into trade policy. We will ensure that trade agreements cannot undermine human rights and labour standards, and that UK Export Finance support is not available to companies engaged in bribery or corrupt practices.”
