UK Wants Deal To Limit Human Rights Court Powers

Representatives from 47 countries are meeting today to decide if the European Court of Human Rights has too much power. It comes as the deportation of radical Muslim cleric Abu Qatada is thrown into doubt after his lawyers lodged an appeal with the human rights judges.

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke is hosting a conference of
representatives of the member nations of the Council of Europe in
Brighton.

The Government hopes to secure a deal on reforms that will see European human rights judges intervene less in British affairs.
