Home Office consultation on draft RIPA codes: Members of chambers respond

Rupert Bowers Q.C. and Abigail Bright were nominated to draft a response to the Home Office on behalf of the Criminal Bar Association to two draft RIPA codes of practice. The response was today submitted to the Home Office. 


The codes of practice are a significant revision of law enforcement powers governing interception of communications and interference with equipment. 


The response on behalf of the Criminal Bar Association is critical of use by the Home Office of mere codes of practice to create coercive powers. 


A copy of the response is available here.
