Telecommunications (Interception) Amendment Bill 2006
I move government amendment (1) on sheet PA337:
(1) Clause 2, page 2 (table item 2), omit the table item, substitute:
2. Schedules 1
A single day to be fixed by Proclamation.
However, if any of the provision(s) do not commence within the period of 6 months beginning on the day on which this Act receives the Royal Assent, they commence on the first day after the end of that period.
This amends the commencement provisions in relation to schedules 1, 2 and 3 of the bill to provide that these schedules commence on a day to be fixed by proclamation. This amendment is required to ensure the necessary amendments to the Telecommunications (Interceptions) Regulations 1987 are made prior to the commencement of schedules 1, 2 and 3 of the bill. The amendment is technical in nature. I commend the amendment to the committee.
