I cannot discuss the sensitive details of the mitigating actions that MI5 have undertaken, as doing so could cause significant damage to national security.

As the Home Secretary said in his Written Ministerial Statement of 9 May, the Investigatory Powers Commissioner is satisfied that they are sufficient for him to continue lawfully to approve decisions to issue warrants to MI5.
