Submission on the Telecommunications Amendment (Get a Warrant) Bill 2013 - August 2013

NSWCCL has made a submission to Senate Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs on the inquiry into the Telecommunications Amendment (Get a Warrant) Bill 2013.

"It has never been more important that lawful surveillance and intrusions upon privacy, which a democratic nation determines to be necessary and proportionate for its security, are subject to strong independent oversight, accountability and maximum transparency.

The amendments proposed in this Bill, if enacted, will provide a significant strengthening of these protections."

  • The NSWCCL strongly supports the purpose of the Bill as set out in the explanatory memorandum
  • NSWCCL supports the proposed amendments to the TIA Act in the Bill
  • NSWCCL supports a more comprehensive review and amendment of the TIA Act
