32. The Bill contains a disparate collection of measures
which are likely to have a major impact on a wide range of rights.
We recognize that the Government is doing its best to respond
to a sensitive security position in a way that respects its obligations
under domestic and international human rights law. We acknowledge
the seriousness with which the Government has engaged in a dialogue
with those (including this Committee) who seek to uphold the core
values of democratic society in difficult times. We welcome the
improvements to the Bill which have been made or promised in order
to improve the safeguards for human rights. At the same time,
there are a number of aspects of the Bill which we are concerned
may continue to compromise the protection of human rights in ways
which have not so far been fully justified. We draw the attention
of each House to the serious and pressing concerns we have raised
in this Report, and those expressed in our Second Report which
have not so far been fully answered.
