The head of MI5, Andrew Parker, has called for more “up-to-date” surveillance powers and said telecoms companies had an “ethical responsibility” to provide more help in monitoring the communications of suspected terrorists and paedophiles.
In the first live media interview ever given by a senior British intelligence official, Parker defended the British surveillance system and backed the government’s plans for new surveillance powers.
The interview, on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, came after the home secretary, Theresa May,summoned the biggest US internet providers and British phone companies to a meeting on Tuesday to seek their support for her new “snooper’s charter’’ surveillance bill.
