Internet "black boxes" could be used to record every email and website visit made by computer users in Britain, it has been reported.

The vision was outlined at a meeting between officials from the Home Office and Internet Service Providers.
It is further evidence of the Government's desire to have the capability to vet every telephone call, email and internet visit made in the UK, which has already provoked an outcry.
