I have today laid before the House the fourth iteration of the Government Transparency Report on the use of disruptive powers (CP 212). Copies of the Report will be made available in the Vote Office and online on

This Government remains committed to increasing the transparency of the work of our security and intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and this next iteration of the Transparency Report is a key part of that commitment.

Publishing this Report ensures that the public are able to access, in one place, a guide to the range of powers used to combat threats to the security of the United Kingdom, the extent of their use and the safeguards and oversight in place to ensure they are used properly.
