So it is a critical point, and AFAIK there is only the Bassam letter to 
go on. Might I suggest Charles that you draft a letter to the 
Interception Commissioner, we tweak it a bit on the list, and then you 
write to him and ask him ? It's literally the only way to settle the 
point, and it would be interesting to see what the response is.

It also would have quite a lot of legal significance IMHO, if someone 
were later to start a IPT complaint (preliminary to a Strasbourg 
challenge) about the forseeability in the quality of law and oversight 
of the UK regime
