Ministry of Justice publishes report on the Government's responses to human rights judgments
The Ministry of Justice has recently published its annual report to the Joint Committee on Human Rights on the Government’s response to human rights judgments. The report focuses on the period between 2010–2011 and considers two types of case: (1) where the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has found a violation of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and (2) cases where the domestic courts have made declarations of incompatibly under section 4 of the Human Rights Act 1998.
In terms of the ECHR, 17 cases became final in 2010. In the majority of the cases listed the Government states that general measures are either in-train or unnecessary. For instance, the violation found in Kay v UK concerning Article 8 in possession proceedings has been remedied by the Supreme Court’s decision in Manchester City Council v Pinnock  UKSC 6.
