Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Amendment Bill. The functions of the Inspector-General do not currently extend to ensuring that ‘privacy’ is included in the policies and practices of an intelligence agency that are subject to review and/or unscheduled audit. This amendment explicitly includes privacy as a practice and policy that is subject to a review.
