Gordon Brown is turning Britain into a surveillance state', Liberal Democrat Nick Clegg claimed.
The Prime Minister should end the 'scandalous fingerprinting' of children at school, Mr Clegg said during a furious exchange at Prime Minister's question.
He added that the British public were the 'most spied upon in the world'.
Mr Brown, who told the House an inquiry into the alleged bugging of a Labour MP would be 'detailed and quick', defended the use of CCTV.
