What the spooks are up to - Intelligence and Security Committee Annual Report 2007 - 2008

01 March 2009

This Report details the work of the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) for the period December 2007 to November 2008.  The Committee has held 26 formal sessions and 25 other meetings since we last reported in December 2007.  The attendance rate at these meetings has been over 90%.   During this time the Committee has primarily focused on its Review of the Intelligence on the London Terrorist Attacks on 7 July 2005. This was a detailed investigation which took the Committee over 14 months to complete. We sent our findings to the Prime Minister in July 2008.  Whilst this Review was the Committee’s top priority, during the year we have also examined and taken evidence on the policy, administration and expenditure of the three intelligence and security Agencies, and the wider intelligence community. We report on these matters here.
