techUK analyses final proposal for Investigatory Powers Bill

Antony Walker responds to new documentation related to Investigatory Powers Bill.

The Home office has yesterday published new documentation relating to the Investigatory Powers Bill. These include six Codes of Practice and the Government response to pre-legislative scrutiny

Responding to these documents, Antony Walker, deputy CEO of techUK commented:

“The test now is to understand if this Bill addresses the very serious concerns that have been laid out by the tech industry and three Parliamentary committees.

“This is a complex Bill, with significance for all of us. Parliamentarians must have time necessary to subject it to the “maximum parliamentary scrutiny” the Home Office has promised.”

"As more details emerge, tech companies are urgently seeking to understand what is being asked of them and the implications for their business, their customers and the security of our digital economy.”

techUK will publish a detailed analysis of these documents in due course.
