Spy agency review may be made public tomorrow

6:55 pm on 8 March 2016

Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee met this afternoon, and is likely to make the review of New Zealand's spy agencies public tomorrow.

The review looked at the adequacy of the law governing the Security Intelligence Service, and how the Government Communications Security Agency legislation is working.

It was carried out by former Labour Deputy Prime Minister Sir Michael Cullen and lawyer Dame Patricia Reddy.

Prime Minister John Key has said there are likely to be law changes based on the recommendations, but he will seek support from the Labour Party before proceeding.
