Communications (Retention of Data) Bill 2009: Committee and Remaining Stages
Ivana Bacik (Independent)
I move amendment No. 7:
In page 6, before section 7, to insert the following new section:
7.--A provider shall comply with a disclosure request made to the service provider only where it is technically possible and reasonable in scope in that the request is not so wide as to place an undue cost on the service provider.".
This amendment is in the same spirit as the earlier amendment we tabled to try to ensure there are not undue burdens on service providers in complying with the legislation. I believe a similar amendment was tabled in the Dáil.
