  • Direction on Consolidated Guidance

    Last August, the Prime Minister wrote to the Investigatory Powers Commissioner asking him to continue the oversight of the Consolidated Guidance to Intelligence Officers and Service Personnel on the Detention and Interviewing of Detainees Overseas, and on the Passing and Receipt of Intelligence Relating to Detainees, which had previous been carried out by the Intelligence Services Commissioner. The IPC accepted the Prime Minister’s request, and has been carrying out this guidance since 1 September 2017. We are today publishing a copy of the Prime Minister’s direction.
