Government's New Lawyer-Snooping Guidance 'Fails Dismally'

LONDON - Today (Friday) sees the consultation close on proposed new 'codes of practice' for state surveillance of confidential communications between lawyers, journalists, MPs and members of the public.

A response submitted by legal charity Reprieve will warn that the draft codes published by the Government remain "inadequate," and too "vague" to ensure that confidential communications between people and their lawyers are adequately protected.
