Current legislation and parliamentary control:
UK Intelligence Services Act 1994.
'An Act to make provision about the Secret Intelligence Service and the Government Communications Headquarters, including provision for the issue of warrants and authorisations enabling certain actions to be taken and for the issue of such warrants and authorisations to be kept under review; to make further provision about warrants issued on applications by the Security Service; to establish a procedure for the investigation of complaints about the Secret Intelligence Service and the Government Communications Headquarters; to make provision for the establishment of an Intelligence and Security Committee to scrutinise all three of those bodies; and for connected purposes. [26th May 1994].'
Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament
'The Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (ISC) was first established by the Intelligence Services Act 1994 to examine the policy, administration and expenditure of the Security Service, Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), and the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The Justice and Security Act 2013 reformed the ISC: making it a Committee of Parliament; providing greater powers; and increasing its remit (including oversight of operational activity and the wider intelligence and security activities of Government). Other than the three intelligence and security Agencies, the ISC examines the intelligence- related work of the Cabinet Office including: the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC); the Assessments Staff; and the National Security Secretariat. The Committee also provides oversight of Defence Intelligence in the Ministry of Defence and the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism in the Home Office.'
Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament Special Reports
Committee Reports
Annual Reports 1995-.
'The Justice and Security Act 2013 requires the Committee to make an Annual Report to Parliament on the discharge of its functions. These reports are first submitted to the Prime Minister who is required to consider, in consultation with the ISC, whether any matters should be excluded in the interests of national security.'
Intelligence and security services.
'Historically, intelligence has been gathered by individual branches of the military as well as centrally by the government security and intelligence agencies. Because of the sensitive nature of intelligence work, many files have been destroyed and others are retained in order to protect the identities of those involved in gathering intelligence. This is particularly true of files relating to the Special Operations Executive (during the Second World War) and MI5 and MI6.'
Intelligence machinery, 2010.
The United Kingdom’s intelligence machinery comprises:
The central intelligence machinery based in the Cabinet Office; the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), often called MI6; Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ); the Security Service, often called MI5; Defence Intelligence (DI), part of the Ministry of Defence (MOD); and the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC). Other parts of Government also contribute to intelligence collection and/or analysis and assessment: for example, the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and Home Office.

GCHQ: The Uncensored Story of Britain's Most Secret Intelligence Agency. / : Richard J. Aldrich. - London: HarperPress, 2010.
Campbell, Duncan: Secret Society I, BBC 1987.
Secret Society Part 2: We're All Data Now - Secret Data Banks
Secret Society Part 3: In Time of Crisis - Government Emergency Powers
Secret Society Part 4: Association of Chief Police Officers - ACPO
'This is Duncan Campbell's shocking BBC video documentary series Secret Society (1987) which shows the never broadcasted episodes on secret groups, committees and societies that operate silently within British government. The first episode about secret cabinet committees features author Peter Hennessy, Clive Ponting and MP Clement Freud amongst others. In this freedom of information tour de force Campbell exposes the secret decision to buy U.S. Trident nuclear submarines as well as laying bare the cabinet level dirty tricks campaign against CND and its general secretary Bruce Kent. Margaret Thatcher, James Callaghan, the British Atlantic Committee, The ultra-right Coalition for Peace Through Security and the cabinet secretary come in for sharp criticism for keeping key decisions secret from MP's. The series consists of the following 6 programmes: 1. The Secret Constitution: Secret Cabinet Committees; 2. We're All Data Now: Secret Data Banks; 3. In Time Of Crisis: Government Emergency Powers; 4. The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO): making up their own law and policy; 5. A Gap In Our Defences - about bungling defence manufacturers and incompetent military planners who have botched every new radar system that Britain has installed since World War II; 6. Zircon - about GCHQ with particular reference to a secret 500 million satellite. Missing are last two (5 and 6) programmes. His support for this series was one of the key reasons BBC Director General, Alasdair Milne (who was replaced by Michael Checkland, an accountant) was sacked. This Journalistic Coup d'Etat was conducted by Lord Victor Rothschild, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Marmaduke Hussey in 1986. The BBC's independence has been under sustained assault ever since. Secret Society was suppressed from high above since it was simply too controversial as it openly exposed various secret groups operating invisibly inside British government.'
