We do not support this amendment. In fact, we think it has already been dealt with. If you look at it you see that subclause 27(2B) provides:

Without limiting subsection (2), a warrant issued under section 46B must state that the warrant does not include the storage of:

(i)   any communications that do not involve the person suspected of an offence under paragraph 46(1)(b) ...

It goes on to the effect that communications outside the investigation are not to be stored. That area has already been dealt with.
