Telecommunications (Interception) Amendment Bill 2006
I will briefly outline some of the concerns that the Democrats have with the amendments moved by the government last night, particularly amendment (10), which is in effect, by our understanding, a lowering of the threshold for the ACMA members. I understand that these amendments are being dealt with in a block, so I indicate that amendments (10) and (11) are of concern to the Australian Democrats. Amendment (9), being a technical amendment, is not such an issue.
Question agreed to.
