Registration details for national access card, failed to register


The Sydney and Brisbane consultations referred to in the item posted below on Sunday, were cancelled due to a "lack of interest", according to this report in the Australian.

Lack of interest or lack of adequate notice? The Australian Privacy Foundation says there was limited advance information about the dates (we only became aware of all this last Friday and we spend a fair bit of time trying to keep up with developments) but the Task Force counters by saying over 160 interested organisations or individuals were contacted (not us).

The new Minister for Human Services, Senator Ellison, has said that the legislation to introduce the card will be tabled in Parliament on 12 June and that two months will be allowed for debate before final consideration by the Senate.
