To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, pursuant to the Answer of 23 April 2018 to Question 135211, whether a person has been appointed to conduct the review of the operation of sections 6 to 11 of the Justice and Security Act 2013; and when that review is scheduled to begin.
14 June 2018
As I indicated in my answer of 23 April 2018 to Question 135211, the review should cover the period from 25 June 2013 to 24 June 2018. It will therefore need to take into account the 5th annual report to Parliament on the use of closed material procedure under the Justice and Security Act 2013, which the Government aims to submit in the Autumn. A reviewer has not been appointed yet. Discussions between officials are ongoing and an announcement will be made in due course
