Clause 9 - Review hearing
Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill
Rebecca Harris (Castle Point, Conservative)
I am not a lawyer—it seems obligatory to state that when one stands up—but I am confused. The right hon. Gentleman seems to suggest that the court could rule on an operational decision made by the security services and the Secretary of State by saying that a poor decision had been made about how to deal with an individual case. Surely the court can rule only on the legality of the provisions that the security services and the Secretary of State wish to introduce.
