About this inquiry

The reason for referral is that these bills contain a number of legislative changes which have the potential to significantly change the operation of the telecommunications industry. Especially concerning is Schedule 5, which will remove a requirement for telcos to divulge the number of warrantless metadata requests they receive from law enforcement agencies. In order to ensure regulatory stability in the telecommunications industry and transparency of warrantless requests, the industry and consumers must be able to provide feedback on these bills in detail.
