answer text <p>Communications data is fundamental to investigating crime, safeguarding national security and protecting the public. The use of these powers is subject to stringent safeguards and is regulated by the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (RIPA). The Interception of Communications Commissioner provides reports to the Prime Minister, which are published and laid in Parliament. These reports include statistics on the use of communications data powers by the police and other public authorities. The Commissioner’s report for 2014, which was published on 12 March 2015 (HC1113), includes a statistical breakdown, by police force, of the use of communications data powers and a breakdown of applications for communications data by statutory purpose. Beyond this, the Home Office does not collect statistics on public authority use of communications data. The recently updated Acquisition and Disclosure of Communications Data Code of Practice revised and enhanced the statistical obligations placed on public authorities. This includes reporting the purpose and (where relevant) crime type of each item of communications data included within every notice or authorisation.</p>

answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has a number of contracts to supply Multi-Terrain Pattern clothing for the UK Armed Forces. The MOD is required to comply with all legislation and relevant Government policy. Subject to these conditions the MOD does not restrict the geographical location of manufacture, however, it does expect contractors to carry out regular and appropriate inspections to provide assurance that sub-contractors' facilities and ways of working meet the MOD's contracted terms.</p> more like this
