The director of campaign group Liberty has said that new data laws are not just for 'snooping on suspects' but will be used on everyone.
Shami Chakrabarti said: "The Government says it's only plugging loopholes but its existing blanket surveillance practice has been found unlawful.
"We are told this is a paedophile and jihadi 'emergency', but the court judgment they seek to ignore was handed down over three months ago and this isn't snooping on suspects but on everyone.
"We are promised greater scrutiny and debate but not until 2016, as it seems that all three party leaders have done a deal in private. No privacy for us and no scrutiny for them. Will Clegg and Cameron's 'debate for the future' really comfort voters and companies today?"
