BRITISH Human Rights Act

The government is proposing to replace the Human Rights Act with a BRITISH Human Rights Act.

Presumably the right to a fair trial, freedom of religion, etcetera will remain pretty much the same as they are under the european Act but what rights should we have enshrined in this Act over "the state".

For example, should Accountants have the same rights to claim privalege that solicitors have regarding their client's affairs ?

Should HMRC have any rights to working papers?

What protection should honest citizens have against an over-zealous state, particularly in the form of tax inspectors ?

 Indeed, should it be enshrined in law that when tax inspectors make "assessments" the taxpayer should be innocent until PROVEN guilty, not assumed to be guilty unless he can prove his innocence as is currently the case?
