Ed Davey responds to court ruling on mass surveillance

by Steve Beasant on 30 January, 2018

Commenting on a court ruling today which has found the government’s mass digital surveillance regime unlawfulLiberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey said:

“The UK’s surveillance regime has once again been declared unlawful. The Government cannot simply tinker around the edges and hope for a different result. What we need is a full overhaul over the system that puts our freedoms and civil liberties at it’s very core.

Liberal Democrats believe we can be safe and secure by ensuring surveillance is targeted and suspicion-led. What we need is for our police and intelligence services to be given the resources and money they need to do their job, not endless new laws.”
