star this property answer text We have been discussing this matter with the Libyan authorities, not the Syrian government. While we do not intend to negotiate a compensation settlement with the Libyan authorities, once stability returns, and our Embassy re-opens, we will again encourage the Libyans to engage with UK victims seeking redress, including those seeking compensation and their legal representatives. The Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Mr Cameron), has said that he is committed to doing this and has asked the National Security Advisor to lead cross-government efforts to engage the Libyans on reconciliation initiatives. The Government will also continue to promote broad and lasting reconciliation between Libya and affected UK communities. more like this

star this property answer text National security is a matter solely for Member States. The UK already has one of the strongest frameworks for the oversight of investigatory powers in the world. Building on the independent reports by David Anderson QC, the Royal United Services Institute and the Intelligence and Security Committee, the upcoming Investigatory Powers Bill will update the legal framework governing investigatory powers to ensure it is modern, transparent, fit for purpose and respects both privacy and security. It will ensure consistent, effective statutory safeguards and enhance our already robust oversight system. It will replace the existing statutory scheme with one that is comprehensive and comprehensible, bringing together all of the powers available to the state to access communications in a transparent way. more like this
