- Report by the Home Affairs Committee of the British House of Commons, which states, "... early in September 2020, we launched an inquiry into 'Unauthorised tapping into or hacking of mobile communications', with the following terms of reference: The definition of the offences relating to unauthorised tapping or hacking in the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, and the ease of prosecuting such offences; The police response to such offences, especiallly the treatment of those whose communications have been intercepted; and What the police are doing to control such offences. During the course of the inquiry, it became clear that it was necessary to examine other aspects too: The scope of the police inquiry in 2005-07; The role of the mobile phone companies in providing security information to their customers and in relation to those whose phones may have been hacked into; and The relationship between the police and the media. Our focus has remained on the police, the prosecutors, the victims, and the legislation; in this Report we do not attempt to reach any conclusions and recommendations about the actions of specific newspapers or individual journalists" - Introduction, p.5. Note that the report also includes a timeline of events regarding police inquiries into activities of News of the World and News International.
