David Cameron Responds to PRISM Data Sharing: UK Intelligence Agencies Operated "Within the Law"

When you write the laws you don't need to circumvent them


David Cameron has insisted intelligence agencies "operate within the law", amid allegations that the data-gathering centre GCHQ circumvented the law to gain information on UK citizens.

Ex-CIA worker Edward Snowden claims US agencies gathered and shared phone records and internet data.

The prime minister said UK agencies were subject to "proper scrutiny" by Parliament and did a "fantastic job".
