Scottish Parliament: Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 1 — Conduct to which this Act applies (7 Sep 2000)

Angus MacKay: ...source of information should not be fettered. It is therefore not our intention that those who carry out such activities, which Christine Grahame described, should fall within the definition of a covert human intelligence source. As section 1(7) of the bill makes clear, covert human intelligence sources are individuals who establish or maintain a relationship with another person for the...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Second Reading (11 Nov 2020)

Lord Rosser: ...the importance of our police and security services, including the National Crime Agency, and thank them for the vital work they undertake on our behalf. We also recognise the importance of covert human intelligence sources and the results they achieve. The director-general of MI5 has said: “Since March 2017, MI5 and Counter-Terrorism Police have together thwarted 27 terror attacks....

Caroline Flint: Numbers of authorisations granted for the carrying out of directed surveillance (under section 28 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA)) or for the conduct or the use of covert human intelligence source (under section 29) are published in the Annual Reports of the Chief Surveillance Commissioner.

Public Bill Committee: Crime (International Co-operation) Bill [Lords]: Clause 82 - Foreign surveillance operations (19 Jun 2003)

Caroline Flint: The hon. Gentleman's argument is that the provision covers undercover officers. It does not, and that was explained in the other place. The Schengen convention covers the basic bread-and-butter covert surveillance work of law enforcement officers. It does not deal with infiltration of organised gangs by undercover officers. That is why it is proposed in the Bill only to amend the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Iraq (8 Nov 2004)

Jack Straw: The validation of human intelligence sources is described in Chapter 5.9 of Lord Butler's report.

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

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: I am interested to hear the noble Lord, Lord Lester, the great human rights lawyer, defending secret processes of this kind. There is no doubt that applications will be made for closed material proceedings in those sorts of cases because the state will not want to divulge the circumstances in which locational intelligence was given. What we as members of the public would want to know would be...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Act 2000: Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Act 2000 (30 Jan 2003)

Jim Wallace: Today we issued final codes of practice on covert surveillance and covert human intelligence sources. These codes provide a framework within which public authorities covered by the legislation should exercise the powers and duties under the 2000 act. The codes of practice will not come into force until draft orders under section 24(5) of the 2000 act have been laid before and obtain approval...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Covert Human Intelligence Sources: Code of Practice) Order 2002 (18 Jul 2002)

Lord Filkin: ...of powers and duties under that Act. The codes support the Act by providing clear and, we hope, unambiguous guidance on authorising the carrying out of covert surveillance and the use of covert human intelligence sources. Section 71(3) requires all draft codes of practice issued under RIPA to be published and the Secretary of State to consider any representations. The provisions in Part 2...

Julian Lewis: On behalf of the Intelligence and Security Committee, I entirely endorse the tributes and good wishes paid by the Solicitor General and the hon.

His professionalism, calmness and dedication as Security Minister and in other roles are a model for us all. We admire him...

Scottish Parliament: Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3: Section 4 — Authorisation of covert human intelligence sources (7 Sep 2000)

Jim Wallace: ...heard Mr Gallie and Mr Wallace and have considerable sympathy with the sentiments that underlie the amendment. We would all agree that it is important to ensure the security and welfare of a covert human intelligence source. Sources should be protected even after they have ceased operating as such. We have considered the matter since it was raised at stage 2, but it is considered more...

Public Bill Committee: Protection of Freedoms Bill (22 Mar 2011)

Robert Buckland: ...to the area of your competence with regard to communications. As you have acknowledged, the proposed reforms would require judicial approval for not only that, but directed surveillance and covert human intelligence sources. I am going to put it simply: would it not be an anomaly if we left the area that you cover out of any proposed reforms to the other two areas in which there is...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Clause 17 - Laying before Parliament (26 Jan 2021)

Kevan Jones: ...forever. I think he does not quite understand why the Government are not at least moving on this. The ISC’s remit is defined in the Justice and Security Act 2013. It sets out which Departments we cover, and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport is not one of them. However, as I said last week, security is increasingly being covered by other Departments, and this Bill is a...

Terrorism Bill (13 Dec 2005)

Baroness Park of Monmouth: We are not worried about bugging, intercepts and all the rest of it—of course that can be done, and there is no danger if it is found out. It is an embarrassment; you have to find another way of covering the target—you have to start again. We are talking about the rare and almost irreplaceable human source who takes years to get into place. If he or she is lost, the replacement is...

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Department: Investigatory Powers Tribunal (3 Nov 2005)

It also...

Orders of the Day — Official Secrets Bill: Defence (15 Feb 1989)

Mr Rupert Allason: Certainly those disclosures could not have been made under clause 1. Members of the security and intelligence services understand their position, although they may not like the idea of being told retrospectively that they are now covered by an entirely new form of legislation that restricts their human rights. And who knows—many of them may well he prompted to go to the European court in...

Written Ministerial Statements — Home Office: Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000: Consultation on revised Codes of Practice (16 Nov 2017)

Ben Wallace: ...the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 The consultation is in relation to the following codes: 1. The Covert Surveillance and Property Interference Code of Practice. 2. The Covert Human Intelligence Sources Code of Practice These codes provide guidance on the authorisation of directed surveillance, intrusive surveillance and covert human intelligence sources under Part 2 of...

Undercover Policing (13 Jun 2012)

Nick Herbert: ...to those recommendations. I do not think that it is necessary to conduct a public inquiry. The hon. Lady raised a number of specific issues, one of which was whether RIPA can be used to authorise a covert human intelligence source to break the law. In a very limited range of circumstances, an authorisation under RIPA part II may render lawful conduct that would otherwise be criminal, if it...
