Decision Maker: Policy and Performance Committee
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
The Council had made no use of the RIPA powers since July 2015. This was due to the fact that the only use being made by the Council was in connection with investigations into benefit fraud. This function had been transferred back to the Department of Works and Pensions. The RIPA Inspector had made only minor suggestions at the most recent Inspection.
RESOLVED that the Policy and Guidance document be amended to include the reduced number of authorising officers.
