|Resource title||The Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill|
|Publication/ source||House of Commons Library|
|Summary text/ abstract||On 10 July 2014 the Government announced that emergency legislation would be introduced on access to telecommunications data. The Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Bill, with accompanying Explanatory Notes, was published in draft on 10 July. The Government argues that emergency legislation is needed to ensure that UK law enforcement and intelligence agencies can maintain their ability to access the telecommunications data they need to investigate criminal activity and protect the public. There is cross-party agreement on the need for the Bill. In April 2014, the European Court of Justice declared invalid a Directive enabling communication service providers to retain communications data for law enforcement purposes for periods of between six months and two years. This Directive has been transposed into UK law by way of secondary legislation. The Bill provides powers to replace those 2009 Regulations.|
