Inside the emergency CORONA BILL with Shami Chakrabarti, Shadow Attorney General
IfG LIVE – Discussions with the Institute for Government
The emergency Corona Virus Bill contains the most sweeping executive powers we’ve ever seen in Britain – yet the situation is so dire that it has cross-party support. How did we get here? What safeguards does the Bill contain and does the Government have the balance right between emergency provisions and fundamental rights? How does it fit with the Government’s previous views on the Human Rights Act and judicial review? Shadow Attorney General Baroness Shami Chakrabarti and IfG Director Bronwen Maddox discuss the enormity of this unprecedented Bill. “This is an extraordinary piece of legislation for an extraordinary moment.” – Shami ChakrabartiPresented by Bronwen Maddox.

Gillian Wearing’s portrait of Shami Chakrabarti, taken with a large-format camera, shows its sitter holding a wax mask of her own face. Wearing has said that the idea was inspired by Chakrabarti’s own comment about her “mask-like” public persona, often interpreted as “grim, worthy and strident”. A barrister, and former director of the civil rights group Liberty, Chakrabarti is now a Labour Party politician, and a member of the House of Lords. In her frequent appearances on the BBC’s Question Time and Radio 4’s Today Programme, among others, she has been consistently passionate and committed in her defence of civil liberties, particularly in areas of anti-terrorism measures and immigration. More recently she has been at the heart of the complex debate surrounding the UK’s departure from Europe. Laura Barton meets Chakrabarti in a park close to the House of Lords, where even on a dreary autumn morning demonstrators have gathered at the gates with placards.This podcast is a collaboration between TOAST and the National Portrait Gallery.
