MPs make security watchdog call

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Finally DG Manningham-Buller is getting rattled in her ivory tower.

  2. Can't see HMG budging too much on this. They won't want too much dirty laundry aired in public. No doubt the report will be 'welcomed' by the Cabinet Office and then quietly filed.

    Thames House, Vauxhall Cross and GCHQ do require some sort of oversight, but the thought of the human rights industry getting their foot in the door may not be so welcome.
  3. Um, there is something called the (Parliamentary) Intelligence & Security Committee, made up of all parties, which deals with the Agencies. Frankly I'd rather the DG answered to just the one bunch of MP's: she does, after all, have other things to focus on!
