Justice and Security Bill — Third Reading — 7 Mar 2013 at 16:53

The majority of MPs voted to allow material deemed national security-sensitive to be made available to a civil court and a special advocate but not parties to the case; to strengthen oversight of intelligence and security activities in Government; and to permit intercept evidence in closed proceedings in employment cases before tribunals.

The majority of MPs voted in favour of the Justice and Security Bill[1][2] at its third reading, supporting the Bill as it stood and allowing it to continue on its path to becoming law.

The Bill provided for:

  • The introduction of a "closed material procedure" in the civil courts which involves making material deemed national security-sensitive available to the court and a special advocate but not parties to the case.
  • An expansion of the statutory remit of the Intelligence and Security Committee to include:
  • (i) a role in overseeing the wider Government intelligence community (beyond the three security and intelligence agencies (the "Agencies")) and
  • (ii) retrospective oversight of the operational activities of the Agencies on matters of significant national interest.
  • The Intelligence and Security Committee to have powers to require information from the Agencies subject only to a veto by the Secretary of State rather than, as previously, Agency heads.
  • Extension of the remit of the Intelligence Services Commissioner at the direction of the Prime Minister.
  • The use of intercept evidence in closed proceedings in employment cases before tribunals across the UK.
