To discuss whether it would even be possible to implement the laws, the government has called in representatives of Facebook, Google and major ISPs. One of the main topics of conversation will focus on whether it's actually possible for service providers to split content data and comms data. The proposals stipulate that the actual content of communications would not be viewed by British intelligence bodies, only data on who is talking to who would be accessed by GCHQ."
