Machinery of Government Change

I am making this statement to bring to the House’s attention the following Machinery of Government change.

Policy responsibility for the Official Secrets Acts 1911, 1920, 1939 and 1989 has transferred from the Ministry of Justice to the Home Office, to align with wider Home Office work on counter Hostile State Activity legislation. This change is effective immediately.
