There has been much debate about the Investigatory Powers Bill currently being considered by the UK Parliament, and several members of our group have given evidence to the various scrutiny panels. This legislation will set the framework for Internet law enforcement in the UK for the next ten to twenty years, and is likely to form a model for legislation in other countries.

This meeting will consist of three parts. Firstly, a history outline of this legislation, which is intended to replace the 2000 Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act and a collection of subsequent regulations and codes of practice. Then, we will talk about evidence our group gave in earlier stages of this bill, and the concerns we have about the legislation. We will then canvass suggestions as to what we, as a group, think might usefully be done to improve the legislation, either in terms of proposals to the government or research topics we could pursue.
