Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how official police use of international mobile subscriber identity catchers is authorised.

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 October 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, it has been an interesting debate. The House seems to have one view and the Minister seems to have another. I thank noble Lords who have partaken in the debate: my noble friends Lord Black and Lord Thomas, and the noble Baronesses, Lady Cohen and Lady Smith. I do not think that the Minister was listening to what I said. Everyone outside the Home Office and the Foreign Office knows...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 October 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, Amendment 49B seeks to repair a serious flaw in the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, a defect that has emerged only recently. Your Lordships will recall that many people inside and outside this House have been warning for years that RIPA as a whole is not fit for purpose because, among other things, its scope is far too broad; it has large built-in loopholes; its...

Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill — Committee (17 July 2014)

Lord Strasburger: For the past year or so, the Minister has resisted all the efforts by me and others to engage in a conversation or debate on these matters. I congratulate him on his sudden and total conversion to the idea that there should be a national debate and a review of RIPA.

Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill — Second Reading (16 July 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I start my contribution to this debate with the words of Benjamin Franklin, in a letter to the colonial Government more than 250 years ago: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety”. Having said that, nobody in this House more than I wants the people of this country to be safe—to be safe...

Press Regulation — Question (2 April 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords—

Intelligence and Security Committee — Question (4 March 2014)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, the Americans have been vigorously debating surveillance and the internet for more than six months. Yesterday the shadow Home Secretary joined in, and today the Deputy Prime Minister made an excellent contribution. When will the Home Office and the Foreign Office abandon their pretence that all is well and that there is nothing to discuss?

Project Tempora — Question (20 November 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government which Minister first authorised GCHQ’s Project Tempora; when that happened; and why they did not disclose the existence of Project Tempora to the Joint Committee on the Draft Communications Data Bill.

Project Tempora — Question (20 November 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I thank my noble friend for the Answer that she was required to give. In a democracy, wholesale untargeted state intrusion into the private lives of all the people, such as Project Tempora, is unacceptable unless it has the informed consent of the people via their Parliament. However, Parliament has not been informed and has not given its consent to Tempora; nor has the Cabinet, the National...

Security Services: Supervision — Question for Short Debate (7 November 2013)

Lord Strasburger: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Soley, for initiating this important debate. Let me start with two tributes. First, I pay tribute to our security services which do an excellent job of keeping us safe. My second tribute goes jointly to the American whistleblower Edward Snowden and to the Guardian, which has published his astonishing revelations. Both have been brave and highly...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000: External Communications — Question (30 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what guidelines Secretaries of State adopt in deciding whether electronic communications sent from the United Kingdom to a United Kingdom addressee but routed outside the United Kingdom fall within the definition of “external communications” in Section 20 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000.

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000: External Communications — Question (30 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: I thank my noble friend the Minister for her reply. We now know that GCHQ is routinely hoovering up and storing prodigious quantities of the internet communications of millions of innocent people, turning us all from citizens into suspects. As far as I am aware, Parliament has not sanctioned this industrial-scale seizure of our private data by the state. Can the Minister please tell the House...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (9 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether a warrant from a Secretary of State is required for GCHQ to collect or store or intercept a spoken or written conversation over the internet when that conversation is between two United Kingdom citizens both located in the United Kingdom and where the data making up the conversation takes a route (1) wholly within, or (2) partially outside, the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (9 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether any further authorisation, over and above a certificate issued under section 8 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, is required for GCHQ to carry out untargeted collection and storage of data as it passes over fibre optic cables carrying internet traffic either (1) wholly within the United Kingdom, or (2) at the point where such a...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (9 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether GCHQ collects and stores untargeted data as it passes over internet infrastructure; and, if so, under what legal authority.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Communications Data (4 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what extra powers they intend to provide to GCHQ under a Communications Data Bill to collect and store internet communications over and above those powers already in use in order to fill the capability gap identified by Home Office witnesses to the Joint Committee which scrutinised the draft Communications Data Bill.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Wilson Doctrine (3 July 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether the Wilson Doctrine on the interception of MPs' telephone calls still applies; whether it covers internet-based communications; and whether it applies to members of the House of Lords.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Security: National Security (24 June 2013)

Lord Strasburger: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many of the 197 intelligence reports received by GCHQ in the 12 months to May 2012 which were generated by the National Security Agency’s PRISM system were individually authorised by a Minister.
