The SNP's Westminster leader has marked Human Rights Day by calling on the UK Government to uphold "to the letter" the rights of every citizen in the UK.
Ian Blackford MP warned that leaving the European Union (EU) must not result in the erosion of citizens' rights as powers are transferred from Brussels to Westminster.
Mr Blackford urged the UK Government to reverse the decision not to retain the EU charter of fundamental rights in UK law post-Brexit.
Theresa May's Government has said it is not necessary to keep the charter in order to retain its laws, principles and rights as these will already be converted into domestic law through the EU Withdrawal Bill.
But Mr Blackford said the removal of the charter risked creating extra legal uncertainty and instability.
A Department for Exiting the EU spokesman said: "The UK has a long-standing tradition of ensuring our rights are protected. As we leave the EU, we are taking action to ensure that that continues.
"The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights was never the source of the rights in the UK.
"However, to provide reassurance we have published analysis showing how each right found in the Charter will be reflected in UK law after exit."
