Consultation outcome: Investigatory Powers Tribunal consultation: updated rules

 

 

In November 2017, the Home Office consulted on the updated rules governing proceedings and complaints at the Investigatory Powers Tribunal. The consultation lasted 6 weeks and was UK wide.

Responses were accepted from past, current or potential complainants and respondents at the Investigatory Powers Tribunal and their representatives, as well as professional bodies (legal or otherwise), interest groups and the wider public.

The Home Office, working with the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, analysed the consultation responses and a number were accepted. The rules have been revised as necessary.

The rules were laid in Parliament on Thursday 11 October.
