British government to monitor calls, emailApril 4th, 2012 - 8:01 pm ICT by IANS
London, April 4 (IANS) Insisting that there are “significant gaps” in the British security, the government has defended its plans to allow the monitoring of phone calls, email and website visits.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said his job was to do “everything that is necessary” to keep the country safe, reported The Independent Wednesday.
Cameron said the government would respect civil liberties but wanted to plug the gap in defences.
“It is the job of the prime minister to make sure we do everything that is necessary to keep our country safe, particularly from serious and organised crime and also from terrorist threats that we have faced in this country, that we still face in this country.”
