Written evidence to Public Bill Committee highlights continuing areas of concern for techUK members.

Recently, techUK submitted written evidence to the Public Bill Committee that is considering the Investigatory Powers Bill currently going through Parliament.

  • Privacy and transparency
  • Extraterritoriality
  • Encryption
  • Equipment interference and bulk equipment interference
  • Internet Connection Records (ICRs)

The written evidence can be downloaded below. techUK will be engaging with the Public Bill Committee over the coming weeks as they begin line by line scrutiny of the Bill. This evidence will therefore be followed up by a more detailed briefing before the second evidence session on April 12.
