Update: Q&A with Keir Starmer MP

 

Wednesday 16 March, 5:30pm
Location: Committee Room 8, Houses of Parliament

Q&A with Keir Starmer MP on mass surveillance and the Investigatory Powers Bill.

Moderated by novelist, journalist and liberties campaigner Henry Porter. With contributions from:

Sara Ogilvie, Liberty
Jim Killock, Open Rights Group
Eric King, Don’t Spy on Us

Keir Starmer is Labour’s Shadow Home Office Minister and is leading Labour’s response to the government’s Investigatory Powers Bill, which will enshrine mass surveillance powers into UK law. The Bill is currently being scrutinised by Parliament and Labour is playing a key role in this process.

Keir will be joining us to speak to Labour members, MPs, civil society, and interested members of the public about Labour’s policy on mass surveillance and the Bill. This will be an excellent opportunity to quiz Keir about Labour’s approach and his views on surveillance and civil liberties.
