Britain's GCHQ electronic surveillance agency did not circumvent the law by using data gathered by a clandestine U.S. spy programme called PRISM, the British parliament said on Wednesday.

"It has been alleged that GCHQ circumvented UK law by using the NSA's (National Security Agency) PRISM programme to access the content of private communications," said parliament's intelligence and security committee. "From the evidence we have seen, we have concluded that this is unfounded."
