Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Report (3rd Day) (20 Jan 2014)

Baroness Hamwee: My Lords, we had the opportunity to consider the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Covert Human Intelligence Sources: Relevant Sources) Order 2013, which the Minister sent round after the previous debate and is now in force, as I understand it. Any of us could have prayed against it. We need to understand as a House that we are not at the point in the development of this—“work” seems...

Public Bill Committee: Justice and Security Bill [Lords]: Clause 6 - Proceedings in which court permits closed material applications (31 Jan 2013)

James Brokenshire: ...child abuse to dangerous driving. Those are clearly not national security issues and if any Government tried to assert that they were, a judge would reject such a suggestion. The Joint Committee on Human Rights recognised that a statutory definition of “national security” would be without precedent, and might be unhelpful where that term is used in other statutory contexts. It...

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Nov 2012)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, for speaking to her amendments. There is recognition on both their parts and across the Chamber of the importance to us of information which we receive from other intelligence agencies. It is often crucial, and it is important that we can reassure them of its confidentiality. We have been trying-I acknowledge that this is the spirit in which the amendments...

Written Answers — Home Department: Police: Surveillance (13 Sep 2012)

Damian Green: No. The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and its associated statutory code of practice make it clear that deployment of undercover police officers as covert human intelligence sources is required to be necessary and proportionate and to be closely monitored and managed by the force concerned. The personal conduct of any police officer is a matter for the force concerned.

Justice and Security Bill [HL]: Committee (4th Day) (23 Jul 2012)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...said, in the intellectual property sphere. However, since 2008 there have been no fewer than nine attempts to use this jurisdiction in relation to disclosure of sensitive material, such as secret intelligence, which either belongs to the United Kingdom Government or which our allies have shared with us. As has been said, the Government do not have an option to withdraw from or seek to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Draft Communications Data Bill (9 Jul 2012)

James Brokenshire: ...and intrusive, and a waste of public expenditure. Our proposals for communications data are critical to support for essential day-to-day police operations.

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Committee (6th Day) (4 Jul 2012)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...ensure public confidence in the UK Border Agency as well as confidence within it. Also, is it up to it? I do not in any way mean the individual border officers, but rather whether they have the resources, training and capacity to undertake those roles. Clause 26 extends a number of powers to immigration officers, both under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act and the Proceeds of...

Justice and Security Bill [HL]: Second Reading (Continued) (19 Jun 2012)

Baroness Hamwee: ...some might say, naivety. The noble Lord, Lord Hodgson, described his feelings as apprehension. I would say that apprehension does not begin to describe it. Part 1, which deals with the oversight of intelligence and security activities, had been eclipsed by Part 2 in the comments that we received before this debate. It is interesting, and encouraging, that more attention has been given to...

Undercover Policing (13 Jun 2012)

Nick Herbert: ..., it is right to ask two principal questions that we must be able to answer with confidence. First, is there a system for ensuring that the use of police undercover deployment is consistent with human rights legislation, particularly the right to privacy and the right to a fair trial? Secondly, is the system working sufficiently well for the particular type of undercover deployment that...

Lord Henley: noble friend Lord McColl for introducing the Bill and providing the opportunity for a debate that has raised a wide number of issues, reflecting the complex nature of the problems of tackling human trafficking.

Written Answers — Home Department: Police: Surveillance (1 Nov 2011)

James Brokenshire: Police forces may only use the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (‘RIPA’) to authorise the use of covert techniques if this is necessary for certain human rights compatible purposes such as the prevention of crime, public safety or national security and if it is proportionate to do so. The subjects of such investigations are a matter for the police, but statutory guidance on how...
