Submissions to the Investigatory Powers Review

[Update 11 June 2015.  David Anderson's report 'A Question of Trust' has been published today and is available on his website, together with two volumes of submissions made to his review. My own submission is also available here (PDF).]

David Anderson QC (@terrorwatchdog) is the UK's Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation. He is tasked under the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act 2014 (DRIPA) with conducting a review of investigatory powers. This includes interception of communications (e.g. by GCHQ and law enforcement) and powers to compel retention and production of communications data. His Call for Evidence closed on 3 October 2014.  Here are some of the submissions to the Review now being made public.


Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law

Centre for Democracy and Technology

Dr Andrew Defty and Professor Hugh Bochel (University of Lincoln)

Equality and Human Rights Commission

Global Network Initiative

Human Rights Watch

And although not strictly speaking a submission to the Review, GCHQ Director Sir Iain Lobban's valedictory speech.
