Telecommunications (Interception) Amendment Bill 2006
The Australian Democrats will be supporting these amendments. The first one does not do anything to raise the threshold in relation to B-party warrants but it does make B-party warrants slightly more clear. Amendment (17) slightly increases the amount of information that is required in the reports. We think it is better than what already exists. Of course, I have already tried to tackle this issue through various means. The Democrats will support these two amendments even though they do not quite go far enough.
