Lord Paddick moved amendment 17, page 3, line 2, at end to insert—
“(8A) Where a criminal conduct authorisation has been granted, the covert human intelligence source so authorised cannot be deployed unless the conditions under subsection (8B) have been fulfilled.
(8B) The conditions are that—
(a) notification has been given to the Investigatory Powers Commissioner of—
(i) the purpose and extent of the deployment, and
(ii) the type of criminal activity it is anticipated the covert human intelligence source would participate in, and
(b) the Commissioner has considered the likely operational dividend against the likely intrusive effects, including the potential for collateral damage or injury, and has approved the deployment.
(8C) In the event of urgency, prior approval is not required but notification must be given to the Investigatory Powers Commissioner as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event not later than seven days after the deployment.
(8D) A notification under subsection (8B) or (8C) must be given in writing or transmitted by electronic means.”
