I would like to know the following:
• Can you state, for each year, how many occasions the council has invoked the powers of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act during the financial years of 2011/2012, 2012/2013 and 2013/14.
• For each instance of the powers being invoked can you provide a brief description of the the reason for invoking the RIPA powers.
• For each instance of the powers being invoked can you state the outcome. E.g. whether a conviction was secured, a penalty notice issued or no further action was taken.
The council has not invoked the powers of RIPA during the time periods given.
