Here are my thoughts on the super-sensitive CHIS (Criminal Conduct) Bill #CHISBill, published today in time (just) for 2nd reading in @HouseofCommons on Monday…. /1
CHIS = covert human intelligence source…: put simply, an agent who for whatever reason (personal, financial, even patriotic) agrees to help the police, MI5 or others spy on suspected criminals. They are authorised under #RIPA… /2
CHIS play a vital role in disrupting terrorism and organised crime. Over the past year, CHIS operations by @metpoliceuk alone are claimed to have led to 3500 arrests, recovery of 100 firearms and 400 other weapons, seizure of 400 kg of Class A drugs, and £2.5m cash. /3

Some predictions of possible consequences of the Strasbourg Big Brother Watch judgment for the Investigatory Powers Act. #IPAct 1/6
1. Oversight of entire bulk interception selection process from start (bearer selection) through middle (selectors etc) to end (analyst searches etc).

Public description of nature and granularity of oversight at each stage. Perhaps doable within current #IPAct framework. 2/6
2. Selection of related communications data (secondary data in #IPAct terms) for purposes other than ascertaining whether someone is currently within the British Islands.

#IPAct amendment. May sound technical, but this is potentially a significant issue. 3/6
