UK Snoopers’ Charter Will Lead to ‘Race to the Bottom’ in Mass Surveillance

The UK government’s so called Snoopers’ Charter would set a dangerous precedent and lead to a “race to the bottom” as governments compete to introduce the most intrusive and hunan rights violation  mass surveillance systems, campaigners have claimed as MPs delivered a stinging rebuke to the government regarding the proposals.

The Investigatory Powers Bill, which would increase the surveillance powers of intelligence agencies, suffered its third major setback, with a joint committee looking into the bill saying that the government had not made a conclusive case to justify its planned increase to web browsing surveillance.

A hugely critical report recommended 86 amendments to the draft existing bill, noting that while MPs and peers could see benefits in granting intelligence agencies greater web browsing surveillance powers, the committee had “not been persuaded that enough work has been done to conclusively prove the case for them.”

” There is a lot of room for improvement,” said Lord Murphy, chair of the committee and former Northern Ireland secretary.

The criticism follows publication of two other parliamentary reports from the Science and Technology Committee and the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC), which were also heavily critical of the bill.
