TICS Bill Up Again
The Government is intending to grind through the committee stage of the Telecommunications (Interception Capability and Security) Bill when Parliament sits today.
MPs will debate the bill after Question Time and the General Debate with the responsible minister Amy Adams moving amendments intended to reduce criticism of the bill.
It is still strongly opposed by Labour and the Greens, so it is likely debate on the four part bill could take up most of the day’s business with the Government hoping to complete the third reading tomorrow.
If there is time after the bill’s committee stage the next item on the Order Paper is the interrupted second reading debate on the Insolvency Practitioners Bill.
