Abstract

The Investigatory Powers Bill must reconcile the increase in invasive surveillance powers with the rule of law. Crucially, Parliament must ensure that it allows the institutions that play a vital part in its functioning, such as judicial commissioners and the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, are given the capacity and autonomy to meet the appropriate standards of transparency and judicial independence.

Keywords: IP bill, investigatory powers, rule of law, IP tribunal, doublelock provision, secrecy, surveillance
