The former shadow home secretary has called them "snooping powers" and said surveillance should only be done properly with the agreement of a judge, but he doubted the bill would become law.

Home Secretary Theresa May has said the draft Communications Bill would not allow police and intelligence agencies to monitor internet use in real-time.
