Prime Minister David Cameron has restated his desire to return to the Communications Data Bill after the next election, saying it helps the cops in TV dramas, and he doesn’t want real-world police to be left behind. He admitted that it wasn’t going to be possible to introduce a Bill before the election; the Bill was vetoed by Coalition minority leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
“In the most serious crimes [such as] child abduction communications data… is absolutely vital. I love watching, as I probably should stop telling people, crime dramas on the television. There’s hardly a crime drama where a crime is solved without using the data of a mobile communications device.”
