In accordance with Section 91 of the Police Act 1997, I have agreed to re-appoint Sir Philip Otton as Surveillance Commissioner from 1 February 2004 to 31 January 2007. The remit of each Surveillance Commissioner covers the whole of the United Kingdom so that any Surveillance Commissioner can act in jurisdictions other than his own.

The right hon. Sir Philip Otton has served as a Surveillance Commissioner since 2001. I am delighted that Sir Philip has accepted his re-appointment and am grateful for his continuing work.
