Supplementary Submission: Review of the mandatory data retention regime
Representatives from the Law Council of Australia appeared before the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security as part of its review of the mandatory data retention regime on 7 February 2020.
During the course of the Law Council’s appearance, the Law Council took a question on notice. This supplementary submission provides a response to the query from the Deputy Chair of the Committee, the Hon Anthony Byrne MP, as to whether the Law Council has a view on the absence in the data retention regime of a mandated time period after which law enforcement and intelligence agencies are required to destroy the telecommunications data that they acquire from telecommunications providers from authorised requests.
