CDT Signs Joint Statement Noting Concerns Regarding the Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill

The Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT) expresses joint concerns about the Investigatory Powers (Amendment) Bill. While the Home Office has briefed interested parties on the Bill, the discussion has been limited to the amendments and not the wider operation of the revised regime.
