Parliamentary Briefing

The Bar Council and the Law Society teamed up to warn MPs about the importance of protecting legal professional privilege from snooping by security services when they sent this briefing to legislators ahead of a Commons debate on investigatory powers on Thursday 25 June.

The debate follows a week after the publication of terror watchdog David Anderson QC's report: 'A Question of Trust', the long-awaited 300 page report into investigatory powers.
