Brexit threat to human rights
The second meeting of the Standing Council on Europe took place today to discuss options to protect Scotland’s interests in the wake of the EU Referendum. As well as considering how the Scottish Government will seek to influence the UK position ahead of Article 50 being triggered, it looked in detail at human rights and social protections, such as employment law and workers’ rights, and the potential threat posed to these rights by Brexit. Members considered how the UK leaving the EU could threaten such rights and discussed options for protecting and enhancing rights in the future.http://news.scotland.gov.uk/News/Brexit-threat-to-human-rights-29a8.aspx
