Submission to PJCIS Inquiry into the National Security Legislation Amendment Bill (No.1) 2014 - August 2014

The CCLs accept that ASIO and other intelligence and security organisations must have the powers and resources necessary for the protection of national security including protection against the very real threat of terrorist activity in Australia - consistent with democratic values. In our view, persuasive evidence has not been provided to justify some of the new or enhanced security powers being proposed in this Bill.
