as law statory interpretationWatch
More significantly perhaps for you in terms of statutory interpretation is that s3 of the HRA requires the courts, "so far as possible to do so" to interpret legislation in accordance with the Convention.
This means that Acts of Parliament should be interpreted in the light of the European Convention rights. This has lead to some UK Acts being interpreted in a manner which Parliament didn't initially intend, but the courts have the power to do this as Parliament wants legislation to be Human Rights compliant.
Hope that helps
