Justice and Security Act 2013

Funding and other resources

36.Paragraph 3 provides a power for the Government to provide funding and resourcing to the ISC.

37.As a Committee of Parliament, primary responsibility for funding and resourcing the ISC falls to Parliament. Paragraph 3 provides a power that would, in particular, permit the Government to supplement the funding and resourcing that Parliament provides to the ISC.

38.For example, the power could be used to provide top-up funding for a limited period where the ISC is facing an exceptional workload and its resource requirements have temporarily increased; or it could be used to provide specific resources, such as IT security or physical security, where the ISC’s requirements, because of the nature of the work it does, are different, and more costly to fulfil, than are the requirements of departmental Select Committees.
