Transparency Report: Disruptive Powers 2020

Volume 709: debated on Thursday 3 March 2022

The Government remain committed to increasing the transparency of the work of our security and intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and this next iteration of the transparency report is a key part of that commitment.
