UK email interception bill stumbles
7 March 2000

'The government's proposed communications interception bill could be delayed after the Conservative Party asked for a key part of the proposal to be changed. Shadow Home Secretary, Anne Widdecombe, said during The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Bill's second reading in the House of Commons today, that the Tories would oppose the third reading of the bill if the 'burden of proof' part of it was not changed.' link
