12 MP'S sign for use of undercover police officers...

That this House is concerned about the use of undercover police officers to infiltrate protest groups; notes the recent decision by the Director of Public Prosecutions urging 20 climate activists to appeal their convictions and that this decision followed allegations that police suppressed evidence relating to an undercover officer; considers that the inquiry with the widest remit, being conducted by HM Inspectorate of Constabulary into the operational accountability of undercover work, is inadequate in scope and insufficiently independent to respond to the many and serious issues raised by the exposure of undercover police officers; and calls for a full and independent inquiry into undercover police surveillance of UK protestors.
