I am grateful to the Minister. While there may be a convoluted route to get to what is proposed in these amendments, if it amounts to the same thing and does the same job with regard to protections around ensuring that privacy is not unnecessarily intruded upon, I see no reason why the Government would resist these amendments. However, at this stage, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Amendment 159 withdrawn.

Amendment 160 not moved.

Clause 96: Power to issue warrants to intelligence services: the Secretary of State

Amendments 160A and 161 not moved.
