According to IT Pro UK, government ministers are considering a plan to spend an estimated £12 billion on a new database that would scan emails to help fight terrorism. The database would monitor and store emails, texts, and calls.

The initial £1 billion in funding to start the program is in place and to monitor users probes will be installed on BT and Vodafone networks. The main issue with many is that of security.

Additional details are expected to surface during the Queen's speech next month. A similar system is available to MI5 but can only be used with approval from the home secretary.
