Joint submission of Evidence to House of Commons Public Bill Committee

The Internet Society, Internet Society UK Chapter and Access Now have made a joint submission to the call for evidence made by the House of Commons Public Bill Committee which is going to consider the Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill.

This joint submission was sent on 7 March 2024.

The Bill, “A Bill to amend the Investigatory Powers Act 2016; to make provision about information supplied by, or relating to, the Judicial Commissioners; and for connected purposes.” was unusually started in the House of Lords before undergoing Stages in the House of Commons. To-date, 8 March 2024, neither the Joint Committee on Human Rights nor the Equalities and Human Rights Commission have provided input to the Evidence – and yet, the Bill is reaching final stages in the House of Commons.
