Senator LEYONHJELM (New South Wales) (12:38): I share the same concerns with respect to the open-ended nature of the bill as it is currently written. It is not just the Greens who are of the opinion that this could give access to the entire internet on a single warrant. I do too and so does the Institute of Public Affairs. They have raised this issue with me. There does need to be some sort of constraint on the scope of warrants issued under this section. It just cannot be allowed to stand. It is a licence to snoop on anybody at any time, anywhere.
