Notes "April 2007"
"On 29 November 2006, the Attorney-General of Australia asked the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) to inquire into the application of legal professional privilege to the coercive information-gathering powers of Commonwealth bodies - such as the Australian Federal Police, the Australian Crime Commission, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and federal Royal Commissions ... The proliferation of bodies with coercive information-gathering powers presented a challenge to the common law doctrine of legal professional privilege."--p. 18
