Senator LUDWIG (QueenslandMinister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and Minister Assisting on Queensland Floods Recovery) (11:14): You invite me to say 'yes', but the targeted protection of the content of the communication is what we are aiming for. It is not the general retention of data. So I do think we are talking about different things. What we are talking about is the targeted protection of the content of the communication which will be subject to a warrant—which is then subject to the cost recovery arrangements—not a general retention of data per se. As I have said, we have referred that off to the PJ inquiry. It is complex, I know. It is an interesting point you raise but it is not the subject of this legislation.
