Senator LUDWIG (4:53 PM) —You are not having much luck tonight, Senator Greig. We disagree, unfortunately. We do not think that the issue should be dealt with separately. We recognise that this issue is more appropriately dealt with under those general provisions of the bill which deal with the destruction of protected information. The amendment in this instance would enable the eligible authority to order the destruction of information obtained by the use of a surveillance device under an emergency authorisation which is not subsequently approved. For the reason that we think that this issue is better dealt with under the more general provisions for all protected information rather than having separate or specified areas we are not minded to support the amendment.
