Nick Clegg has said Britain's intelligence services should be overseen by a single watchdog in the wake of a series of privacy scandals.
He said the watchdog, dubbed the Inspector General for the UK intelligence services, would:
- Have "reinforced powers, remit and resources"
- Bring together the present Interception of Communications Commissioner and Intelligence Services Commissioner
- Allow appeals against decisions of the Investigatory Powers Tribunal and publication of the reasons for rulings
- Put a member of the opposition in charge of Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee "to avoid accusations that the committee is too cosy with the Government of the day"
