Draft Access Card Bill hits the deck

On the last day of this session of Federal Parliament the Government quietly released to the media the draft Access Card Bill. It says it has beefed up privacy provisions, but the police and intelligence services will have access to the database without the need for a warrant.

Other concerns are sure to emerge during the the two month consultation period.

It's probably going to be quiet time on this initiative through the election period.
