Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Bill 2015; In Committee
Labor will be opposing this amendment for much the same reasons as Senator Brandis outlined. As he has indicated, the matter was canvassed by the Joint Parliamentary Committee on Intelligence and Security, which noted that there were existing protocols in place around the retention and destruction of documents—one example that Senator Brandis just gave. It is important that we review those and come with a satisfactory outcome from those processes.
