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 by resolution of the Parliament.
