Surveillance Legislation - why the rush?

This week, after just one day of scrutiny in the House of Commons, Parliament rushed through emergency surveillance legislation. Along with over 50 other MPs from a range of parties, I voted for an amendment which would have required us to replace it with a properly thought through Bill by Christmas, allowing for greater consultation, scrutiny, and amendments.

I discussed the issue on Radio for the Week in Westminster show here (from 22 minutes).
