Telecommunications (Interception) Amendment Bill 2006
For the record, the government opposes this amendment. It sees no reason to delay the report of the Ombudsman—in fact, it should be reporting which is fairly expeditious. I think the delay of it is undesirable, but the government will continue to, as I say, consider those recommendations of the committee. At this stage, there is no compelling reason the government sees to agree to this amendment.
