Submission + - British spy agencies need to 'snoop on every call' to fight terror (

ickleberry writes: "THE ability of UK spy agencies to combat terrorism will be severely hampered without powers to monitor every email, phone call and web visit, a parliamentary committee warned yesterday.

Advances in forms of communication mean MI5, MI6 and the British government communications headquarters GCHQ will increasingly lose the capability of spotting and monitoring potential terrorists, the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) said.

The warning came as the coalition split on the plans to extend snooping powers deepened. A defiant Theresa May, the British Home Secretary, insisted she was determined to get the measures into law during this parliament."
