Search & Surveillance Bill to be Redrafted

The Government has announced that the over-reaching Search and Surveillance Bill is being redrafted.

This is at least a partial victory for the large number of people and groups who opposed the original bill as being an unwarranted expansion of government power.

The new version should be available in July/August.
