Date published22/01/2014
Summary text/ abstractWe are asked to advise Tom Watson MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Drones, on the lawfulness of five possible scenarios concerning state surveillance in the United Kingdom. The five scenarios are necessarily to some degree based on assumed facts. However, we have been referred to a number of news reports arising out of the recent disclosures made by Edward Snowden, upon which the scenarios are based. We note that in contrast to the approach of the US Government, the UK Government has refused to confirm or deny the existence of the programme outlined in the scenarios. Furthermore, the Guardian newspaper has not published any documents concerning the activities of GCHQ in connection with what is known as the TEMPORA programme.
