GCSB bill – what Labour want

Labour have submitted Supplementary Order Paper 305 seeking changes to the three related bills being amended.

3A. The amendment to the Government Communications Security Bureau Act to expire 12 months after it receives the Royal assent

25A. An independent inquiry to report back within 6 months of commencement of the bill.

27A The amendment to the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security Act to expire 12 months after it receives the Royal assent.

37A The amendment to the Intelligence and Security Committee Act to expire 12 months after it receives the Royal assent.

So basically they want an inquiry within 6 months and chuck out all the amendments in 12 months, presumably anticipating recommendations of the inquiry to be enacted by then.

Original Bill: Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Amendment Bill 109-1

Committee Amendments: Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Amendment Bill 109-2

A Supplementary Order Paper detailing Peter Dunne’s amendments is not yet on the Parliament website.
