Snoopers' Charter Consultation
Posted: August 13, 2012 in data retention, surveillance, tracking

The draft Communications Data Bill - the 'Snoopers' Charter' - is currently up for consultation before a specially put together Joint Parliamentary Committee. The consultation period has been relatively short - it ends on 23rd August - and at a time when many people are away on holiday and while many other have been enjoying (and being somewhat distracted by) the Olympic Games.

Even so, it's very important - not just because what is being proposed is potentially highly damaging, but because it's a field in which the government has been, in my opinion, very poorly advised and significantly misled. There is a great deal of expertise around - particularly on the internet - but in general, as in so many areas of policy, the government seems to be very unwilling to listen to the right people. I've blogged on the general area a number of times before - most directly on 'Why does the government always get it wrong?'.

All this means that it would be great if people made submissions - for details see here.

I shall be submitting something myself - it isn't quite finished, but here's some of the current draft, reformatted for the blog. Any thoughts would be welcome.

Anybody else not think that this was a deliberate ploy?
