Telecommunications (Interception) Amendment Bill 2006
I have outlined previously the government’s position in relation to the ASIO regime and the regime for law enforcement. We believe that the Attorney-General is an appropriate person in this case. If you can do it for telephone intercepts, you can do it for stored communications and warrants albeit that it relates to a B-party. We believe that we should stay with the same regime that we have.
