Database plans shelved...

. Another result for Labour's strategy of subtly shelving costly bureaucratic and invasive measures. The Independent report's that plans for the 'Big Brother' database will not be in the Queens Speech scheduled for 3rd December.

Its 'Whitehall sources' insist that;

"a consultation paper early next year would set out options for collecting the information"

but;

"there is no firm indication when the new Communications Data Bill will be published".
