Government neuters Parliament on National Security issues such as Euro collapse!

The Joint Committee report is linked here, the following being an important quote:

The Committee says the Government's unwillingness to provide it with all the information it has asked for about the National Security Risk Assessment means that it is unable to give Parliament any assurances about its adequacy. It says that: "We need this information if we are to do our job properly".
The Committee is concerned that the "National Security Council's oversight of security issues is not sufficiently broad and strategic", given that it was deeply involved in operations in Libya and failed to discuss the national security implications of the Eurozone crisis or the possibility  of Scottish independence.
