Dame Wendy Hall on MPs scrutinising online privacy

MPs are not equipped to deal with technology and are too reliant on the web firms they are checking on, says Dame Wendy Hall.

The pioneer web scientist, named one of the 100 most powerful women in the UK, is calling for an independent commission to support Parliament with a panel with technical expertise to scrutinise online businesses and protect privacy.

The world leading computer scientist, who has spent her career at the forefront of developments around the web and digital media, reckons ministers are not getting the right advice.

But she get to debate her film on Wednesday's Daily Politics with MPs Greg Clark and Chuka Umunna on BBC2 around 12:40 GMT, and the full sequence will be on iPlayer for 30 days.
