Justice and Security Act 2013

(25 Jun 2013) The Justice and Security Act came into force today. Part 1 of the Act allows for additions to the Commissioner’s statutory functions by direction from the Prime Minister. This means that the Commissioner’s remit can be extended to allow for oversight of any aspect of the functions of the intelligence services and parts of the MOD engaging in intelligence activity.

When directions are made public they will be published on the website. It is for the Prime Minister to decide if they should be made public.
