On 19 December 2013, the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (ISC) announced that it would investigate the issues highlighted in the Detainee Inquiry report published by Sir Peter Gibson. The Committee is now inviting written submissions from those who wish to contribute. Further details are provided in the Call for Evidence.

The Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament (ISC), the Rt. Hon. Sir Malcolm Rifkind MP, stated:
"The ISC has today reached a milestone in its investigation into the role of the UK Government and Security and Intelligence Agencies in relation to detainee treatment and rendition. The ISC will be considering the issues raised by Sir Peter Gibson in his interim report, and the adequacy of the current framework governing matters related to detainees. I strongly encourage participation from all those who have information to contribute."
