Further Submission to Freedoms Inquiry

Earlier this year we provided details (see briefing here) on the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) Inquiry into Commonwealth legislation that unreasonably encroaches upon traditional rights, freedoms and privileges.

Our initial submission was considered and referred to in the Interim Report, see briefing here, and we have now made a further submission expanding upon some of the points we have raised. This subsequent submission emphasises the importance of taking the context into account for any proportionality assessment.

A copy of our submission can we downloaded from the link below.
