Annual Report

Independent National Security Legislation Monitor annual report 2017

4 Dec 2017
Description

The Independent National Security Legislation Monitor Act provides for the appointment of the INSLM. The INSLM independently reviews the operation, effectiveness and implications of national security and counter-terrorism laws; and considers whether the laws contain appropriate protections for individual rights, remain proportionate to terrorism or national security threats, and remain necessary. In conducting the review the INSLM has access to all relevant material, regardless of national security classification, can compel answers to questions, and holds public and private hearings. INSLM reports are provided to the Prime Minister and are tabled promptly in Parliament. The INSLM does not deal with complaints but welcomes submissions on the reviews. The INSLM is a part-time role and is supported by a small permanent staff located in Canberra.

This annual report review's the INSLM's activities for the reporting period between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2017.
