Theresa May, the new home secretary, today confirmed that the new coalition government is reconsidering the Conservative manifesto pledge to scrap the Human Rights Act.
She made the announcement as Nick Clegg, the Lib Dem deputy prime minister, said that any government would tamper with the HRA "at its peril".
