Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Amendment Bill


Proposed amendment

Dr Russel Norman, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 24, new section 25:

In clause 24, new section 25(1)(a), after possession of the Bureau (line 5 on page 21) insert if there is a connection to a clear and present security threat.


Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 24 of the Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Amendment Bill. If incidentally obtained intelligence is to be obtained, then it should at least meet the threshold of having a connection to a clear and present security threat. This amendment adds this criterion to new section 25.
