Commenting on a court ruling yesterday which has found the government’s mass digital surveillance regime unlawful, Liberal 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 of the system that puts our freedoms and civil liberties at its 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."
