The Secretary of State for Justice is now Brandan Lewis MP. He has replaced Dominic Raab MP, the architect of this shameful Bill - Law and Lawyers: Appointments ~ Lord Chancellor, Attorney General, Home Secretary, Northern Ireland (obiterj.blogspot.com)
The Bill was presented to Parliament by Raab even thoughhe had commissioned an independent review which made only minimal recommendations for change.
Unless one is "on the inside" it is not entirely possible to say why the government has made its latest decision. It may simply be that the new (Truss) government decided to put its efforts into something else.
Whatever the reason, it seems unlikely that the government will have abandoned its desire to make reforms to the enforcement of human rights in the UK. Caution is essential.
Even if the Bill had got through the House of Commons, it was likely to face considerable difficulties in the House of Lords.
This blog has several posts about the Bill and also about the independent review. The posts will remain on the blog as a point of reference. Law and Lawyers: Bill of Rights Bill - further material (obiterj.blogspot.com)
