Abstract

Last month, MI5 Director General Andrew Parker appeared on BBC Radio 4 to make the case for intelligence agency powers in advance of the forthcoming Investigatory Powers Bill. Andrew Defty argues that while new surveillance legislation is needed, a robust regulatory framework will also be required to produce effective intelligence and a more secure society. To achieve this balance, security agencies need to be subject to more frequent, rigorous and open scrutiny than the occasional curated media appearance.
