The Department of Justice (DOJ) is conducting a consultation exercise on a proposal that would extend to Northern Ireland a provision contained within the Air Traffic and Unmanned Aircraft Bill relating to the use of drones over custodial institutions.
The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on this proposal. Subject to the outcome of the consultation we intend to ask the Department for Transport to extend this provision to this jurisdiction.
The Department would welcome views on the proposals and this consulation will run for a period of eight weeks from 10 January 2020. Therefore all responses should be submitted by 5pm on 6 March 2020.
