Science and Technology Committee (Commons)

Investigatory Powers Bill: technology issues inquiry

Scope of the inquiry

The draft Investigatory Powers Bill is, in large part, a response to advances in communications, particularly over the internet. Confidence in commerce depends on reliable encryption. The boundaries between content and communications data are becoming blurred. The consequences for privacy, proportionality and data security will be explored by the Committee in the context of the rapidly changing technological landscape – and the need to fight terrorism and crime.
