IPA submission into potential reforms of national security legislation

The IPA put in a submission to the joint parliamentary committee into potential reforms of national security legislation. The submission is available here.

The Institute of Public Affairs believes many of the national security proposals contained in the Attorney-General’s Department’s Equipping Australia against Emerging and Evolving Threats Discussion Paper are unnecessary and excessive. Many of the proposals:┬ácurb civil liberties;┬ásystematically breach Australians’ right to privacy, and breach basic rule of law principles.
