Intelligence and Security Committee Report

The Intelligence and Security Committee has reported back on the Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Amendment Bill.

The committee (by majority) recommends that the Bill be passed, outlining proposed amendments.

The amendments include the request by Act’s John Banks but the seven amendments agreed to with United Future’s Peter Dunne will be dealt with by separate Supplementary Order Papers.

A quick look reveals a number of clarifications and closing up of gaps in the bill.

It will take time to have a good look at the combined Committee and Dunne changes and whether they address the widely discussed shortcomings of the original version of the bill.

It includes minority reports from Labour and the Greens.
