Committee publishes written evidence

07 January 2016

Over 120 pieces of written evidence submitted to the Joint Committee on the Draft Investigatory Powers Bill are published.

Chairman's comment

Chairman of the Joint Committee, Lord Murphy of Torfaen, said:

"The Committee is grateful to the wide range of people and organisations who have taken the time and effort to submit evidence to the inquiry. 

"We are aware that the short time available to the Committee for its investigation has been a cause of concern for people who have their own concerns and questions about the draft Bill. Our timetable, set by the two Houses, is certainly a challenging one. However, our witnesses' willingness to work with us to this tight deadline, and the range and quality of the written evidence that has been submitted, is something the Committee acknowledges gratefully. The written evidence, together with that which we have heard in oral evidence sessions, will be vital to our further work."
