Joint Committee on The Draft Corruption Bill Written Evidence


Memorandum from the Intelligence and Security Committee (DCB 32)

  The Intelligence and Security Committee has examined Clauses 15 and 16 of the draft bill and it has consulted the Agencies in question. The Committee is content that these two clauses are necessary to ensure that the Agencies, when conducting activities that would otherwise be illegal in the UK, operate with the authorisation of the responsible Secretary of State. The Committee is content that the Intelligence Services Commissioner is the proper person to keep these authorisations under review.
