David Anderson QC Recommends Investigatory Powers To Be Shifted To Judges

Posted on June 12, 2015

Requiring judicial authorisation for the interception of communications would be a revolutionary change in the world of spies and secrets – the biggest for some 400 years. David Anderson QC, whose report on investigatory powers calls for a shift in power from politicians to judges, notes that a secretary of state was intercepting messages as long ago as 1643; and Viscount Falkland, who held office during the English civil war, was unlikely to have been the first minister to order private letters to be opened.
