Senator Scott Ludlam on the tabling today of a parliamentary joint commitee report entitled “the National Security Inquiry”. We explore with Scott the issue of proposed mandatory data retention, enhanced powers to ASIO, the threat to data encryption which the report addresses in light of the extraordinary recent revelations of the US’s NSA #PRISM programme by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
