7 April 2020
The report, called "Coronavirus and Civil Liberties in the UK", analyses the range of legal issues that the restrictions give rise to.
On 26 March 2020 the United Kingdom became subject to regulations setting out the most severe restrictions on liberty ever imposed. Those restrictions are vitally necessary for fighting the coronavirus. However they give rise to a range of legal issues. The report analyses a range of legal issues that the restrictions give rise to, investigating what further refinements and reinforcement are required to ensure the restrictions are placed on a more secure legal footing that ensure protection of individual liberty.
