Civil liberties groups have called for reform of the Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC), the watchdog for the security services, after they were smeared as having suggested that terrorism is a price worth paying for freedom.

They accuse the ISC of being a “mouthpiece” for the intelligence services, echoing comments by David Davis MP, who helped to set up the Committee, that it has become “taken in” by the glamour of the security agencies.

Representatives from civil rights groups Big Brother Watch, Liberty, Justice and Rights Watch UK were invited to give evidence to the Intelligence and Security Committee last October on whether mass personal data collection was necessary and desirable to prevent terrorist atrocities from occurring.
