"Neither commissioner with responsibility for the intelligence agencies, nor their inspectors, has ever conducted a formal inspection or audit of industry in this regard."

The technical term for this is "dereliction of duty".

Does anyone think it pretty strange there's a "Regualtion of Investigatory Powers Ac" and

The reason there are so many similar Acts is that each one so far has been smacked down when it goes to court so they have to supersede it with a new one. It's a trial of patience.
