Migration Amendment (Strengthening Biometrics Integrity) Bill 2015

 

 

Schedule of the amendment made by the Senate

 

 

 

 

 

( 1 )     Schedule  1 , item  45 , page 9 (lines 13 to 15) , omit the item, substitute:

45  Section 258F

Repeal the section, substitute:

258F   Person must not be required to provide personal identifiers in a cruel, inhuman or degrading way etc.

                   For the purposes of this Act, a requirement to provide a personal identifier, or the provision of a personal identifier, in a particular way under section 257A is not of itself taken:

                     (a)  to be cruel, inhuman or degrading; or

                     (b)  to be a failure to treat a person with humanity and with respect for human dignity.

However, nothing in this Act authorises the Minister or an officer to require a person to provide a personal identifier under section 257A in a cruel, inhuman or degrading way, or in a way that fails to treat the person with humanity and with respect for human dignity.
