A proposed British law that gives police and spies unprecedented powers to look at the Internet browsing records of everyone in the country will be governed by "the strongest safeguards" against abuse, the interior minister said. Opening a House of Commons debate on the contentious bill, Home Secretary Theresa May said the law would provide "unparalleled openness and transparency" about the authorities' surveillance powers.
