2016

#### Practice Areas

Public Law

Cathryn McGahey QC acted as counsel to this review, which was conducted by David Anderson QC, the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation. The review investigated the usefulness of some of the powers which the security and intelligence agencies would have, under the Investigatory Powers Bill, to use bulk forms of information in their counter-terrorism work. The review concluded that bulk powers were of substantial utility, and that their use in the past had saved lives.
