Senator BROWN (6:02 PM) —The use of the word `intercept' is curious in relation to stored information; `retrieval' might be better, considering the other arguments the minister has given. There are two matters I want to ask the minister about for the third time. Firstly, is it necessary for some serious criminal matter to be investigated before access to citizens' private, stored information is given through this measure? Secondly, is it possible that, under this legislation, private businesses or individuals, through a civil application or other matter, may be able to access other citizens' information?
