Lord Norton, one of The Lords of the Blog, writes:
The Lords Constitution Committee has spent over a year undertaking an inquiry into the impact of government surveillance and data collection and the effect it has on the privacy of individuals and their relationship with the state.
The report, Surveillance: Citizens and the State, is a substantial one, both quantitatively and qualitatively.

Spy Blog will have a few comments to make on this report when it is available online.
