But you must accept that whilst we're dealing with criminal laws here, in the detection and evidence-gathering stages of any particular criminal event, such that you can prosecute—I can imagine, and would support, the government using every possible resource available to it, and that doesn't just include the AFP. There would be other agencies that would be involved in the collection and interception of conduct that is covered by this bill. Surely, that's correct, isn't it?
