ORG responds to the Science and Technology Committee’s report on the Investigatory Powers Bill

Jim Killock, Executive Director of Open Rights Group said:

“David Cameron needs to consider whether he wants to be the Conservative PM that jeopardised the success of the UK tech industry.

“As it stands, the IPB will be bad for business, bad for citizens and bad for UK democracy.

“There are serious concerns about whether the issues raised by the Committee can be resolved in such a short timeframe. There is too much at stake for the government to rush this law through.”

The Committee’s report is available here.
