We believe that the reporting proposed by the government is sufficient. When you look at the Telecommunications (Interception) Act reports that are being furnished to the parliament, they are indeed detailed. They outline agencies that have sought warrants and relevant statistics; applications made; applications refused; and the number of warrants issued with conditions or restrictions. It is a comprehensive report. We believe that to go as far as the Democrats are suggesting could well have some operational impact and we are not inclined to support these amendments.
